Our cars aren't complete without a little personalization. I'd like to see your homescreen and wallpaper.

To get us started here is something I made for my car. I'm just a novice so don't be too harsh.

I will have to try this out. Can you upload multiple images in case you want to change it?

  1. Put the images on a flash drive
  2. Plug it in to the USB in the center console
  3. Long press on the home screen
  4. Tap "Change Wallpaper"
  5. Select "Gallery"
  6. Choose image
I am getting message 0 images in gallery.

it's really slow to find images, so just wait for 30+ seconds. Also make sure you're using the USB port next to your cup holder.

I can play music from the USB located in the center console/underneath the cup holder. When i tried to change wallpaper, I get no image in gallery.
I will try a lower resolution image. May be the images I am using straight from the camera are too large of a file size.

Thanks

Page 208: Max image size is 1,920x936 and max file size is 2 MB. Most images straight off the camera would be much larger than that.
While that is from our manual, it's straight out of the 9th Gen manual. Honda didn't update that part of the manual for the Android based 10th gen infotainment system. It also mentions using knobs, shows the wrong screens, and says images must be on the root of the drive, none of which is true about our car.

I've just uploaded a 1920*1080 version for testing, I'm going to try to load it as my wallpaper just to verify possible image limits..

That page of the manual is for the Color Audio, not the Display Audio, so similarity to 9th gen is understandable.

Wallpaper page for Display Audio:
