Garmin Start Up

edited August 2011 in The bottom bracket
I was uploading a new route to my Edge 800 last night, and browsing through the files on the garmin, I came across the start up file. Opening it expecting it to be quick start instructions, it told me to type here to set a message on the start up screen.

So, I've put, 'It never gets easier, you just go faster'

Anyone else added a message to theirs, and if so, what was it?

    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    I've set my own background, cropped an image and erased the background from a TDF pic. Upload it to Garmin --> Backgrounds. Needs to be 160*240 jpeg

    EDIT

    Been playing with some ASCII art and it deosn't work, the display area is too small so you're stuck with words of encouragement.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
