Question about Garmin GPS
Sorry but there is no master reset. If it was a gift, tell whoever bought it for you what happened and let them exchange it for you. If it has a security code on it, that means someone else had it before you. New units do not come from the factory with a PIN.
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.
