Custom Screen Image on your Subaru

If you haven't been following my blog, you should know that I'm a big fan of rally.  Racing to the limit on tarmac, dirt, and gravel roads is an awesome test of both car and driver and I enjoy following rally teams pursuit of perfection in these demanding conditions.  One of my favorites to follow is Subaru Rally Team USA and every time I watch in-car videos I see that logo on the dashboard.  So when I found out I could do the same thing in my 2016 WRX STI (or any Subaru with a 7.0 inch Touchscreen) I was pretty stoked.

All you've gotta do is download this image to your computer and follow the instructions in this short video I made.  You can do this with any picture, but it works best with images sized in 800x480 pixels or 1280x782 pixels for use on Subarus with the 7.0 Inch Multimedia Plus or Multimedia Plus Navigation systems.

Check out the video below and follow along to add this to your Subaru!


  1. Your tutorial is great. I've created my own image for my 7 inch screen, ie; a perfect circle created in Photoshop looks stretched horizontally... in other words, it does not appear round at all! more like an egg shape... I've tried everything??? Any thoughts?

  2. Make sure the image itself is the same dimensions as the screen. Otherwise it will stretch the image to fit.
