You have a problem my friend. Either remember your pin or

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device. (Approximately 150 feet from that location)

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note Garmin will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

Im locked out i have lost my pin code for my garmin nuvi gps


Hello,

Going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 260 on ebay and it is locked. How do I unlock it. It does nothing but ask for the pin?


I would do one of two things: ask the seller for the PIN or return it and get your money back. You cannot get past the PIN number without entering the correct PIN, taking the unit back to the location at which the PIN was entered or returning the unit to Garmin. However, Garmin requires proof of purchase in order to send the unit back to you.

I recieve a garmin as a gift @ it now has a code lock on it how can i unlock my garmin 260


The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location. (where it was orig programmed)
To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
  1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
  4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
  5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
  6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
  7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
  8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
  9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.

My nane is Ralph J. Rhodes. I just recrived a Garmin 260 from Amazon.com. I tried to register my new unit, but could not get past the password. The system kept telling me I could not use +()* ets, I wasn't...


I do not have a problem with my Garmion 260 unit. My problem is the Garmin web page to register my unit. I can't get past the password. Their system says I'm uning @*( ) ^ etc but I'm not and as you can tell my keyboard is working fine, but their system will not let me go any further. I want to register my unit and can't and may be order an AC adaptor.

Pin code for garmin nuvi 260


Find out where your "friend" did the code. If you don't know what it is, then you have to go back to that exact location where they did it and it will automatically unlock it for you. Then you can follow the instructions below:

Answer: If you can remember the PIN Code previously set on your device you will be able to change the Pin on your device easily. You can change the PIN on the unit by doing the following:
Zumo's, Street Pilot Cxx, Nuvi 3xx, 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch the Spanner symbol
  3. Touch System
  4. Touch On/Off next to Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.
All Nuvi's excluding 3xx and 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Security
  5. Touch On/Off under Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.

When the Garmin security lock is set it locates the units current GPS location.
If you are trying to change the Garmin Lock and are not within the same location to where the Garmin Lock was set you will need to revert back to this GPS position.

Once at this position you will not be prompted to enter the PIN Code when starting the device up and can change the code as you please.
