    Exclamation Nav Startup Screen Hack

    Does anyone have any 'recent' or updated info on changing the NAV startup screen image or the likes? Most items (acura related) and from when this poped up, is way old - Anyone with an 05/06 Odyssey done this lately or have info on it?

    Thanks

    I just did this today infact!

    I will be posting a detailed page with how to on my site sometime this next week.

    I have an '05... I followed the Acura directions floating around but it was different file names, slightly different screen steps, and the image file you use is in a different format then what they were saying to use.

    Here is a photo: http://img.errorik.com/2006/06/02/Ho...NavHack-01.jpg

    I will post a URL to the how to in this thread when it's ready.

    Here is the link to the Acura TL forum. I cannot confirm this is one-for-one on the Ody, but if you have the time, it may be fun

    How did you get this to work?
    I also have a 2005 EX-L with Navi V4.13C. I used the new Bysin.exe and tryed to update SHJA2.bin but it said: "Unable to find back.bmp on BIN"

    For an 06 Ody with Navi DVD version 4.31:

    The file you need to modify is 05Touch2.bin. Not 06Touch2.bin.

    The startup screen bitmap file you want to replace is Opening1.bmp. Not back.bmp.

    hcvt.exe converts a 480x234x24-bit bitmap to a 16-bit bitmap of the required 224,712 bytes. Available as hcvt.zip from http://stevemg.sc30.info/hcvt/

    My problem was burning the media. I could never get it to recognize a cd/dvd/dvd-dl with just the original files. Any updates?

    OK, so I'm attempting this on my own, following the steps on the Acura thread but using the file names you've provided.

    I've encountered two problems:

    1. hcvt converts the file to a format that dumpnavi will not accept. So I converted it to the specs in the Acura thread 8-bit, 173 colours, etc., but then....

    2. ...dumpnavi crashes on my computer when I try to extract the files. This is using both the command line and gui versions.

    I think that second problem is going to be a killer for me, unless there is some other version of dumpnavi that will work on my computer. I'm going to keep trying, but I'm not hopeful.

    My navi came with two map DVDs. Does it matter which one you get the bin files from?

    Instead of dumpnavi.exe, try using cebin.exe (available from http://home.earthlink.net/~akonshin/files/cebin.zip), and use hcvt.exe to convert your 24-bit BMP to 16-bit. Make sure the filesize of your 16-bit BMP is 224,712 bytes.

    If the BIN files are the same on both DVD's, I don't think it matters; if not, use the DVD that has 05Touch2.BIN.
