How to Upload a Wallpaper Image to 2012 or 2013 Honda Civic i-MID

The Intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) feature is sort of like “command-central” for your Honda, it shows vital driving information such as current mpg, trip range, text messages and even driving directions if you’ve opted for the available navigation system. But the i-MID also offers some cool settings that let you personalize your display (on its beautiful high-resolution color TFT LCD screen) via the Import Wallpaper functionality.

So here’s a quick step by step guide to get that great picture of your kids, dog, favorite vacation photo or whatever you’d like on your Honda Civic i-MID display. These instructions will work on both 2012 and 2013 model years.

What You’ll Need:

The image - The image format should be JPEG (.jpg) or BMP (.bmp) with a maximum pixel size of 1,920 X 936, and a maximum file size of 2MB.

A flash drive - (also known as a thumb drive, USB, memory stick)

Please note:

  • Make sure your wallpaper image file(s) is in the root menu of the flash drive (not in a folder). Images in folders cannot be accessed.
  • File name – keep it short and sweet – 64 characters or less.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Importing Wallpaper Image From a USB:

  • Plug the flash drive into the USB port (located under the arm rest).
  • Start car.
  • Hit the “Menu” button (located on the steering wheel controls)
