Simple. Garmin has a program called "xImage". Download and install it. Then you can upload a new splash screen, or capture screen shots FROM your GPS. Cool.
To see if your model supports xImage, click on this link
, then select your model. xImage will be in the "Additional Software" listing. If it's there, download and install it.
Note: THE VERY FIRST THING YOU WANT TO DO
the first time you run xImage is to download the OEM Splash Screen and archive it
for when you want to return the GPS back to it's original Splash Screen. Make sense?
When uploading a new (or edited) Splash Screen, the file needs to be named "Splash Screen.bmp
". You'll also want to make of note of the original splash screen's size. I believe they are all Bitmap (.bmp) files, but you'll want to make sure of file-type as well.

See above. Yes, your 2610 can do this.

Today is a "Conference Break Day" or some such thingy. I don't care what they call it. Just so I get eggs & bacon for breakfast with my wife . . . at home!
