We all have a custom background pictures on our phone. A loved one, a pet or maybe just some cool places you’ve visited. Regardless of the picture, everyone likes being reminded of this person, thing or event when we look at our phone. Why should your Insane Audio head unit be any different? Well we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be, and others can enjoy your pictures while in your vehicles too.
It’s simple to get your favorite pictures onto your Insane Audio head unit, the only tools you’ll need are a computer, Mac or PC, a microSD card, or a thumb drive. Oh yeah, a couple of cool pics too.
The first thing you’ll want to do is located your favorite pictures on your computer. Once you have found some great pics remember their location or drag them to a spot that’s easy to find on your computer. The desktop always works for me.
Now let’s grab that thumb drive or microSD card that we talked about earlier. Plug the thumb drive into your USB port of your computer or use an adapter to connect the microSD. Once the storage device is connected and visible on your computer find those awesome pictures then drag and drop them onto the thumb drive or microSD card. Once the pics have copied over, eject the storage device. To eject the storage device safely, right click on a pc or double click on a mac and press eject.
It’s time to jump into your vehicle. Now let’s connect your storage device to the unit. The microSD card will go in the slot in the front of your Insane Audio head unit. If you used a thumb drive, you’ll want to connect it via the USB extension cable that came with your unit. Regardless of the way we’re connecting the storage device, you’ll want to make sure we eject anything in these ports correctly. (To properly eject, go to Settings > Storage & USB > Scroll down and tap the eject icon next to the storage device you would like to eject.)
Once your storage device has loaded you can access it in the File Browser app. You can find he file browser under your “Six pack” app list.
This is located in the bottom center of your screen, or the upper left for older models. **Older models contact us about an upgrade!!!
When in the file browser you’ll see your storage device on the left side of your screen. Select the microSD card or thumb drive.
If you just drug the files, without a folder, you should see them immediately on your screen. If you don’t see them, navigate to the folder the pictures are located in.
Now that we’ve located our picture, lets click on it. The picture will open in the gallery app, this will import the picture onto our device. We’ll want swipe down from the top of your screen and select the back button, in the upper right, it’ll take us back to the file explorer.
When we’re back at the file explorer lets hit the home button, and select the “Six Pack” App list, then locate you Gallery app. Open the Gallery app
Your imported pictures will appear here in a separate gallery, just click it to open this gallery.
Here you can select the imported picture you’d like to save as your background. Click the picture itself.
Now, click the 3 dots in the upper right corner. A drop-down menu will appear, scroll down till you see “Set picture as”
Now we can set the image as either wallpaper or a Contact photo. In this case, you’ll want to select Wallpaper.
Now just click the “check mark” in the upper left that says SET WALLPAPER.
