how to reset gps

There's a small pin hole somewhere on the unit were an ink pen tip can fit in. Inert the tip of the pen in the hole and hold it for about 3 seconds and release it. This will reset the unit. I have a Becker GPS.

hello i have a garmin c550 gps and for some reason it blocked on me i forgot my pin nunber i guess... i dont know how to reset it and i dont have my manual with me....

The manual would not help you. Resetting the unit (even a Master Reset) will NOT remove or reset the PIN. Your options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set.
3 - Return the unit to Garmin.

the only way to unlock a gps is to return to the security location (where you put the pin in for the first time) or return the unit to garmin to get it reset.
