Question about Garmin Touch Screen GPS Receiver
I have a garmin nuvi200w and i cant unlock the screen i dont have the old code is there a master code to unlock them
No, unfortunately. You either need to drive to the secure place to unlock it, or contact Garmin to have it unlocked. Once unlocked, I would recommend turning Garmin Lock OFF.

if you bought a locked satnav without a code you are either very stupid or handling stolen goods. And dont give the **** that you didnt realise or didnt check. No-one in their right minds buys a satnav without seeing it working.
If you still claim its legit then send it off to Garmin and they offer an unlocking service

No, there is no master PIN but if you take it back to the security location you set when you first installed the GPS, it will automatically unlock and you can then reset the PIN number.

SOURCE: garmin 200w how do i unlock it
There are only 3 ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:
1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. Be aware, however, if you are not the owner of record, Garmin will NOT return the unit to you.

I have had this problem before. You have to make sure you have the proper map data selected in Mapsource before you start selecting data to download to the GPS. I had multiple maps loaded into Mapsource but they weren't all unlocked for the multiple GPSs that I own. if I got the licenses mixed up between the units it wouldn't work. There should be a setting in your option menus.

There is no master unlock on any Garmin unit - for security purposes.
To temporarily unlock, you can return to the HOME location initialized during the setup process - but when powered down - it must be returned to the location again for use.
To get it permanently unlocked it must be sent to Garmin with proof of ownership (receipt).
