How do i unlock my garmin nuvi 310 deluxe


If you have a PIN number on your device you will have been asked to set a security location. When you are at your security location or within approximately 50 metres of your security location the device will unlock without the PIN number.

Lock


Garmin lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your Nuvi. each time you turn on the Nuvi, enter the pin or drive to the security location to unlock.

Touch tools>settings>security
touch the button below Garmin lock
Enter a 4 digit pin and drive to security location

Note if you forget your PIN and your security location, you must send your Nuvi to Garmin to unlock it. You must also send a valid product registration or proof of purchase.

Hi i have lost the pin code for my garmin nuvi 200w sat nav, what do i do now ????


I disagree. You just need to take your Garmin to the "Secure Location" where you originally were required to set your passcode. Mine, as with most people, was my own driveway. Think back to where you probably were when you first programmed in your code.

I bought a used garmin nuvi and it is pin locked and i cant find the person i got it from? how do i reset or get pin?


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.

Need pin number for a garmin 250w


Sorry, no easy answer here. But if your "friend" has the code you're all set. If not, do you know the location within 150 feet of where the code was entered in the GPS? Yes? Go there and it will unlock automatically.
No? Then your kinda screwed. Try this:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series 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.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we 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.

To contact Product Support in your area go to http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact
