    I uploaded 3 (the limit on the base head unit) new wall papers. Also thought it would be nice to have a thread where members can share the jpegs that have worked for them.

    How to:
    Load .jpegs on to a USB stick and plug into your car USB outlet
    Go into you head units settting>wallpaper
    Upload file to one of the three available locations

    Here is a few that have worked for me.....

    Thanks. I'll definitely check it out. I guess I was thinking it would be helpful to share actual jpegs that are compatible with the "base" head unit. I know the upgraded head unit with carplay and all will be much easier and straight forward. I guess mods can delete thread if this is redundant.

    EDIT: I just looked through that entire thread. Most of the pictures are of the interior of the car display and not the actual jpegs. Also most are non-base head units so the resolution will be different.

    Here is a few more. I have the rear hatch view in my car currently. The darker background wallpapers look better IMO.

    I threw in a Leftovers themed one for anyone who loves that show as much as I do!

    I'm with the o.p. on this one. there needs to be a thread for the base unit please. The thread stak mentioned hardly has any real files, and most of them do not work on the base unit, only the larger one in the ext's and such. For some reason, getting a quality background in a res that will upload to these base unit screens is much harder than it should be. If anyone could help here we would very much appreciate a decent selection.
