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.

Take the unit to the location at which you first entered the PIN. This is the Security Location. The unit will unlock and you can reset the PIN.

Reset password garmin 660


If you can't remember your password, take it back to your security location and it will unlock itself. You can then change the password to something you'll remember. If it won't unlock at the security location, send it to Garmin with the original receipt and they'll reset it.

Neither of us remember password for garmin 660 how do u reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

Created a password and forgot it


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.

My garmin nuvi 660 is asking me for a pin and i done have it. i need help


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."

So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.
