Customize the iMID screen in your 2014 Honda by uploading new Wallpaper using a USB Flash Drive. Ted Buck, our Honda Certified Sale Consultant takes a 2014 Honda CR-V and demonstrated in the YouTube Video below how to upload your own pictures.
The process that Ted used on the 2014 Honda CR-V will be similar on most 2013 and 2014 Honda vehicles. If you are having a problem with an older flash drive, you may want to do what we did and get a new one. The brand of the USB flash drive probably won’t matter, but since this is a question frequently asked….ours is the SanDisk brand.
Tips For Uploading Wallpaper In A 2014 Honda
You can import up to three images, one at a time in a Honda equipped with an i-MID Screen. Here are a few important details that will help with your success:
- When importing wallpaper files, the image must be in the USB flash drive’s root directory, not in a folder.
- The file format of the image that can be imported is BMP (bmp) or JPEG (jpg).
- Each image file can be up to 2 MB in the CR-V and up to 6 MB in the 2013 – 2014 Honda Accord.
- The Maximum image size is 1,680 x 936 pixels. If the image size is less than 420 x 234 pixels, the image is displayed in the middle of the screen with the extra area appearing in black.
- the number of files that can be selected is up to 255.
- Up to 64 characters can be displayed in the file name…just keep it simple.
This information and more will be in your Owners Manual. On the 2014 Honda CR-V that would be page 90. If you have an older Honda CR-V you may want to read this blog post on How to Upload Wallpaper To The 2012 Honda CR-V i-MID Display
