SOURCE: HOW CAN YOU UNLOCK A CODE LOCKED UNIT if you dont have the code?

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.

SOURCE: i cant unlock my garmin nuvi 200.

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).

I got nuvi 205w satnav cant remember code ulock it plz send me reset code plz


Hello. If you can't remember the unlock code, there is no master reset code. The unit must be sent in to Garmin to be unlock. Another way you can unlock it is by going to your Unlock location, the location where you first set your lock on your device and as long as you have satellite signal the unit will unlock. Other than that the unit has to be sent to garmin to be unlocked. You can call garmin customer service at 800-800-1020 to set that up.

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.
