    Default Garmin 2797 Dashboard

    Hello, how do I install new dashboard for this GPS? I downloaded several of them as .rgn files and created a "\nüvi 2797\Internal Storage\Dashboards" folder where I copied them to but I can not select them, maybe this GPS does not support this?

    That sucks. I found dashboard in .dshb format but it did not work either.

    Shouldn't it be possible to hack the system and change the default dashboard? After all, all (?) Garmin units use similar Linux based software.

    Tomis use Linux, Garmins have their own closed OS. Think you can convert it to dezl 560 and use the dashbords. Don't ask how and what use the search function of the forum.

    Search is easy looking at sticky Indices, in this case:

    Does anyone know where I can find this cool dashboard?

    It looks to be a custom made dashboard.

    Screenshot from: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (Garmin 3490 3590 Dashboards) Will ask the video uploader but he has not been active in 5 months.
