Here's your options:

1. Enter the correct PIN.
2. Go to the secure location where the PIN was set and it won't ask you for a PIN.
3. Send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Sorry but there is no master reset. The PIN is written into memory that can not be erased. I have had success in unlocking Nuvi's but I will only do it for people who have a valid purchase receipt from a major retail chain and if they can provide me with their Garmin registration info so I can verify that they are the rightful owner.

There are too many of these units out there that are stolen and the culprits are looking for a way to bypass the PIN. This is why Garmin added this feature to their GPS's.

Lock


Garmin lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your Nuvi. each time you turn on the Nuvi, enter the pin or drive to the security location to unlock.

Touch tools>settings>security
touch the button below Garmin lock
Enter a 4 digit pin and drive to security location

Note if you forget your PIN and your security location, you must send your Nuvi to Garmin to unlock it. You must also send a valid product registration or proof of purchase.

You can't. You have to send it to Garmin with original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will unlock it. This security feature cannot be bypassed and there is no master unlock PIN.

How to unlock a garmin nuvi 680 , im looking for a garmin gps and i found one on ebay for a good price but its locked, so i need to know how easy or hard it is to unlock it. Thanks


The only way to get this unlocked is to send it back to garmin with proof of purchase. Reason is that these items are commonly stolen and Garmin does not want to support criminal activity.

Can't unlock my garmin nuvi 680


There is NO master reset code. Whoever told you this was wrong. You have to use your security location to unlock it. Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer. This is to prevent use of the unit in case of theft.

I have a garmin nuvi 680 gps unit lock


Hi,
When you first programmed the GPS you have the opportunity to select a safe location,
if you selected the safe location, go back to that location, and the lock will not be on, it is for the reason of forgetting it, but it will only work in that location ~ ( ie: your old driveway )
If you cannot do this,
it's a Garmin job to unlock it,
There is no other way to unlock it.

Regards
Richard.

HI I WANT UNLOCK CODE RESET HOW CAN I DON'T KNOW PIN NUMBER NUVI 680 THANKS


You will have to return it to Garmin and verify that you are the registered owner before they will unlock it. Unless of course if you have secondhand unit that may have been stolen in which case you won't get it unlocked.

If you don't have the security number, take the unit back to the security location. If you don't know where that is, send it to Garmin.
