Could soemone tell me how to set up the wallpaper on the mid screen?  I can't find anythinh in the manual.  Also, my salesman set up the IPhone and the IPOD for me, but it seems the car has trouble recognizing the IPOD.  Should I just use the USB port instead of wireless?

Any luck changing the wallpaper? I just got my crv on Saturday and am having the same problem.

Me too...I just got my CRV about a week ago and can't get pics to download. Tried using a flash drive and jpgs were not showing up. Thanks!

If you have the owners manual, customizing wallpaper is on pages 90 thru 93. If you do get wallpaper loaded, to display it go to page 81. The display button is on the left side of the steering wheel.

Actually I reviewed the owners manual before I wrote my post. It seems to recognize music files but not jpegs. Any ideas?

i got them downloaded but it will not display. i followed all the directions. i can see them in preview where they are stored. all i see is the digital clock.

I figured it out, image size is sensitive to 480 x 234 pixel dimensions. Anything that size or smaller should work. I have uploaded a few images already into my 2012 Honda Pilot. Hope this helps everyone. What I did was I took an image, re-sized the pixel dimensions using Photoshop (you can use any other photo modifying software) to that specific dimension, threw it on a usb key and transferred as a wallpaper.

i did that. even after it said it was installed it would not show up. i took it to the honda dealer, they spent over an hour doing it...then said it was no problem. it stuck for about 2 weeks and then disappeared! i have not gone back yet but i will.


ok razerbackdanny....YOU GOT IT...YES!!! the final step i guess is to press the display button that is on the left side of the steering wheel....i pressed it once and said something about the clock and the second press got my wallpaper to appear!! i could not get the pic file small enough thru iPhoto but i took the photo in a smaller format on my camera and it installed fine and accepted it but would not display UNTIL i hit that button....

but the SAD part is that honda doesn't know the answer themselves! or if they do they won't share it....i actually brought my car in and they would not show me how they got it to display.....
