Lost my garmin nuvi 205 password, how do I reset it


Every time the 205W is powered on, you must enter the PIN, or drive to your security location you set up when the PUN was first entered..

My garmin nuvi 780 is asking for a pin code it was working fine yesterday any ideas


You must have installed a PIN code when you first set it up. If you can't remember, then take it back to the security location and it will automatically unlock, and you can reset the PIN. If you purchased this privately rather than from a dealer, there is a chance it is stolen. The PIN is the security feature of Garmin GPSes.

This same thing happened on my nuvi 780 and I just had to go into settings and re-select English as the language and it started working just fine.

The NUVI 780 tells me it is currently locked and to unlock slid the button to the left. However, this does not unlock the system.


Most likely the switch is bad. Do you feel it click when you put it back to the center position? Is it in the center position? How does the switch work when you use it to turn the unit on & off? That switch has (2) sections to it.... one for on/off and one for screen lock. It's possible 1/2 of the switch is bad. I've replaced them before.

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.
