TomTom GO Classic, 300, 500, 700, ONE and ONE Rider, all these systems
use a 240 wide by 320 high, 24 bit colour depth BMP image file as
the splash screen. The image is actually a 320 by 240 image rotated
clockwise by 90°, so when you view the image here it looks like
it is standing on-end.
1. Select the
image or photograph you want to have displayed on your TomTom GO
2. Open an image editing program (Paint, Microsoft Office Picture
Manager, etc.) and rotate the selected image 90 degrees clockwise
3. Re-size the image to 320 pixels high x 240 pixels wide
4. Save the image as a 24-bit Bitmap file named “splash.bmp”
5. Plug Your TomTom GO into your computer via the USB cable
6. Use the TomTom Home software to view the contents of your TomTom
7. Locate the original splash file which is called “splash.bmp”
and rename it to “splash1.bmp” (this naming allows you
keep the original TomTom splash screen)
8. Copy your image (splash.bmp) from your computer to the same TomTom
9. Disconnect and boot up your TomTom GO.
picture should be there to greet you when you turn it on or off!
