Drive it back to the location you set as your security location and it will unlock. You can then reset the PIN. If you can't do that, you'll have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt and they will unlock for you.

Unlock garmin 1390t gps forgot 4 diget pin


    • 1 Enter your four-digit personal identification number that you used to lock your Garmin GPS. When your Garmin GPS is locked, you need to enter the four-digit PIN every time you turn the device on.
    • 2 Drive to the security location that you set when you locked your Garmin GPS. Turn your Garmin GPS on and pull the GPS antenna up so that your GPS is able to acquire the satellite. Once your GPS recognizes that you are at your security location, it will unlock itself.
    • 3 Contact Garmin if you forgot your PIN and security location. You will need to send your GPS to Garmin to have it unlocked. You will also need to send a valid product registration or proof of purchase for Garmin to unlock your GPS. Call Garmin at (800) 800-1020 and get the shipping address and specific instructions from an authorized Garmin representative.

    I forgot my pin and I need to unlock it


    You have to go to the orig location you programmed your number. It uses the coordinates of that location in memory as a "Home" See below.
    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.
    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.

    I forgot my pin number. How can I reset it. I did not do anything about the security location to begin with.


    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.

    I forgot my password


    If you no longer want a PIN lock on your Garmin, unlock the unit by 1 - Entering the correct PIN or 2 - Taking the unit back to the location at which you originally entered the PIN. Once the unit is unlocked, press the icon at the bottom of the screen that looks like a wrench. Then press "System", and "On" next to "Garmin Lock." Then press "Off." The unit will no longer ask for a PIN on startup.

    Unlock


    A Master Reset WILL NOT reset the PIN. Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:
    1 - Enter the correct PIN
    2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was originally entered
    3 - Send the unit back to Garmin.
