    I have an unclear recollection about GIR_Editor exhibiting problems dealing with GIR logo images from some later devices resulting in the symptoms you've both described and i suspect that the limitation is a result of the device's firmware rather than GIR_Editor or RGN_Tool. Knowing Garmin if it's fw related it's probably intentional. Unfortunately TurboCCC seems to have disappeared as well as the wikispaces page with all his programs.

    EDIT: To try and be more clear, changing boot.bin logo using GIR and RGN always results in the correct image on the device, however the quality is greatly diminished, and the color palette is completely wrong, even when using unedited images extracted from firmwares that do not exhibit this behavior.... Thus, something is wrong with either GIR (v58), RGN (v94), or both.
    Upload the bad image and the good image to zippyshare.com; it might be a image format problem that GIR incorrectly create.

    Thank you Butters & osiris4isis!

    They are identical 24-bit images.

    Problem is, the unedited images I extract from the 'good' firmwares are 16-bit, and GIR can not handle 16-bit images at this time....

    So I can modify the 24-bit bmp image to a 16-bit bmp, but GIR refuses to use it 8^(

    How did you extract the 16-bit "good" image if GIR can't handle 16-bit? How did you convert to 24-bit image?
    What is your device? Post your extracted .gir or .bin file.

    The logo.bin extracted from a fresh GCD with RGN then opened in GIR and saved as a BMP also comes out wrong, because it is actually a 16-bit image and GIR appears to only support 24-bit images:

    I am working with a GPSMAP 66.

    I used an unedited logo.bin to build an RGN installer to restore proper boot display clarity via GarminUpdater, but this leaves me unable to use my own images for the boot screen.

    GIR save all logo in 24-bit bitmap format for you to edit. When the new bitmap is loaded back into GIR, it will convert to the appropriate format in the .bin file to be used via RGN.
    If you read the GIR readme.txt file; it said that it support various image formats based on the type (eg: 10, 11, 12 or 19) The statement "GIR appears to only support 24-bit images" is incorrect. The trick is to find out what GIR type the GPSMap 66 uses. Without the original logo file to look at, I can't really help.

    The reason I stated that GIR does not support 16-bit images is because I gat a pop-up message at one time in GIR stating that only 24-bit images are supported.

    The forum does not make it easy to share files... I have the unedited logo.bin extracted from the factory firmware, is that what you want?

    BTW, the GPSMAP 66 firmware logo_1005.bin is reported by RGN as Region '10'.

    Put it in an archive file, RAR or ZIP are accepted as attachments.

    BTW, the GPSMAP 66 firmware logo_1005.bin is reported by RGN as Region '10'.
    RGN_Tool gives the region # in hex. Decimal 16 is Hexadecimal 10.

    Upload the unedited logo bin to zippyshare.com and post the URL.
