    You changed the file name. They must be in Joliet filename format.

    Leave the file name as it was in the zip folder. Joliet is XXXXXX.YYY format no spaces allowed. (Back to good old pre windows DOS filenames.)

    The bitmaps must be also in a specific format. I use an existing photo or Bitmap convert them and import them into the program GIMP.

    You then need to do precise bit by bit editing and resize to an exact format. And multilayer them for transparancy.

    You are doing well. You are learning how to drive the radio. Nice radio your son has there. :)

    Cheers Brian

    Brian.
    The bitmaps thing I am afraid is a bit beyond me.
    I have learnt to delete the icons and am happy with that situation.
    I have only deleted certain ones apertaining to boats.
    But I have noticed that once the icon is deleted I cannot click( tap) that icon anymore to raise the next menu.
    Would it be possible for you to send me a bitmap of anything that looks like a boat?
    A really simple one will be fine.
    I don't want you to spend all night on it.
    Photshop is out for me.
    Too expensive and I will be forever frustrated trying to use it.
    I leave that for the people that know what they are doing.
    Sorry to be a pain.
    What I meant about the 12s battery is....how many hours should it last for on a full charge ?
    Then I can test mine.

    I will have a look around. What type of boat? It takes quite a while to get a picture formatted for the 12S.

    The duration for the 12S battery charge is dependant on how he has set the screen timeout.

    It should last 2-3 hours in normal operation. I always carry a spare battery.

    Before I spend time on a model bitmap can you confirm the you have selected one of the ones I have sent you already? And that it worked OK?

    Hi Peter,

    I have found a picture of a model boat. It will take some time to edit it and format for the 12S.

    Can you take a photograph of your boat and post it here?

    Please confirm that this is something you would use.

    Also please advise that you have been able to load and use one of the bitmaps I have previously set to you?

    Cheers Brian
