FORGOT THE PIN FOR MY GARMIN GPS AND I MOVE TO ANOTHER CITY


Hello,

Going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

My moms nuvi 360 is locked and i moved to WI from IL were i set the code how do i unlock it?


Take it back to the security location and it will unlock.
If that's not possible, send it in to Garmin with original receipt from a Garmin dealer and they will unlock it, there might be a fee for this service.
If that is not possible, it's locked forever - there is no master code.

Forgot 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.

Can't unlock my garmin nuvi 680


There is NO master reset code. Whoever told you this was wrong. You have to use your security location to unlock it. Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer. This is to prevent use of the unit in case of theft.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

I forgot my pass code to unlock my nuvi


This is a scripted massage, take what you need from it.

If it is the garmin lock you are referring to, you need to enter the security number you programmed into in on initial set up. If you do not have or remember the code, then the GPS must be turned on in its secure site, this is where ever you were when you set up the garmin. Driveway, backyard, etc. If you don't have access to either of these then the unit has to be returned to garmin to have it unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

Garmin nuvi 360 wont unlock maps


Master reset is after you turn on the GPS put a finger on the left lower corner rightaway and then keep the finger there, wait until it shows up the "Do you really want to start up in maintainance mode"

You are not able to use others nuvi's map on your nuvi 360, as each map must match with the GPS unit ID, to find out your GPS's unit ID, go to "Setting" tab on "System", tab on " About"

Forgot my pin code of my garmin 360


Here's your options:

1. Enter the correct PIN.
2. Go to the secure location where the PIN was set and it won't ask you for a PIN.
3. Send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Sorry but there is no master reset. The PIN is written into memory that can not be erased. I have had success in unlocking Nuvi's but I will only do it for people who have a valid purchase receipt from a major retail chain and if they can provide me with their Garmin registration info so I can verify that they are the rightful owner.

There are too many of these units out there that are stolen and the culprits are looking for a way to bypass the PIN. This is why Garmin added this feature to their GPS's.
