Are you using MapSend TOPO? There is another way to do it:
Upgrading the "Copyright" screen
Some versions of Mapsend have a “Woodall’s” copyright screen that appears during power on. To change the copyright screen, go to the Mapsend program directory, navigate to the ‘MAP’ subdirectory and look for the Export.cfg file. Open it in Notepad and look for the lines:
To keep these old lines but not show them place a semicolon before the number, and add the new lines. For example:
3=Nowhere, NY 12345
Remember, the lines with the semi-colon don't count and don't show up anywhere.
Bonus: the lines will print in numerical order (for whatever that's worth).
Save the file and start up Topo or S&D, mark your regions, save to disk and move to the memory card and start up your Magellan Meridian and you should see the new screen just before the "Lawyer" screen. Unlike the “Lawyer” screen modification, this one is simple and does not involve manipulating the firmware. It is 100% safe.
Note: You cannot have blank lines or lines filled with spaces. I've had as many as 8 lines. More than that just won't show up on the Magellan's Screen. With 8 lines you should be able to place some advertising for Pepsi or Coca-Cola, except for the darn "Database Copyright Notices" heading.
Thanks to Fred Merchant for that information.
