Default Can you customize the Navigation Home Screen?

Can you customize the Navigation Home Screen? Is it possible to do it on the 2015 Lexus LS 460 ?

I find it strange that my navigation home screen has the dealership name and logo on starting up the car so I figure that it could be set or change.

Is there a video or guide on how to do it?

I want to put my family picture as the start up home screen. LOL

There is a detailed thread on this topic of customizing the startup and displayoff images. It's very easy to change the startup image. The only catch is the StartUp image will display for only one second before going to Nav screen. You can load family photos on the DisplayOff screen and have them display when you are driving around. Thanks to Dr. Jekyll, here is the link. Follow Dr. J's instructions carefully, especially regarding formatting. The instructions in the owner's manual are not the best.

Lol, I wonder if that is a mistake or this thread is making its way to the top of any Google search for Lexus customize navigation screen?

Well, I just googled that and sure enough this post is very high on the results and the first non-video post so maybe that's why?

Probably a search oddity or a software bug. I find it hard to believe that tens of thousands of people are searching this topic within the last 2-3 days when I noticed the exponential increase. It does coincide somewhat with the Lexus software issue over the weekend when Nav screens were turning off. Then again, my amazing reply to OP and Dr. J's superb instructions may be setting the internet on fire :

My nav screen plays Innagadadavida on start up. Oh wait, I'm thinking of my 8 track cassette player mounted under the glovebox. Never mind.
