Garmin Colorado & Oregon Backgrounds Redesign

If you’ve paid any attention to the default backgrounds that came with your Colorado and Oregon GPS, you’ve probably noticed the unbelievably low quality of these 240 x 400 px wallpapers.

If you don’t like the defaults either, and you don’t have time bothering to create your own, I have created 12 fresh backgrounds for you. 9 of these are meant to be used as replacements of garmin default images, so they are named exactly as garmin versions.

Installing the new backgrounds

  1. New Garmin Backgrounds.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file somewhere on your computer.
  3. Connect your garmin unit to your computer and wait for the Garmin drive to appear.
  4. If you want to preserve the garmin originals, it is time to back up them now. The backgrounds (.jpg files) are stored in the “Garmin->Profiles” directory in your unit’s internal memory, which you should have mounted my now. Copy those files somewhere on your computer for safekeeping.
  5. Copy the jpg files you unzipped previously into the “Garmin->Profiles” directory in your unit’s internal memory.
  6. Eject the garmin unit.
  7. Enjoy the new backgrounds.
