Drive the unit back to the original location where you entered the PIN, and it will unlock. You can then enter a new PIN into the unit. There is NO other way to unlock the Garmin GPS units, without sending it to Garmin with the original receipt.

Take the unit to the location at which you first entered the PIN. The unit will unlock and you can reset the PIN to something you can remember.

Need unlock code for garmin c550 . I found it in a car when i used to transportate cars to dealers. Was a avis rental. Think the garmin is owned by them. Dont mind returning it but i want it. It not...


Sorry. 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 entered.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin.

If you send the unit to Garmin to unlock and they determine you are not the owner of record, they will return the unit to the rightful owner.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

If it is the garmin lock, then you need to take the unit to your sercure area, and the unit will unlock. This should be where ever it was you set up the unit.
If you don't remember either. Then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

If It is locked up (Software) then remove the faceplate and press the reser button.


Hope this is of some help.

My kids locked my garmin nuvi 260w all my screen says is enter pin in i dont know it


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.
