If you purchased this from a retailer, box it up, with the date of purchase and maybe a VISA card number so they can look back in their records. Ask them to unlock it at the secured location, and re-enter a generic pin number, and mail it back to you. Without taking the unit to the secure location, or without an original receipt, you won't be able to get this unlocked.

No... and please don't try to take it apart. I have received many emails about people destroying their Nuvi, trying to take it apart.

Please read this article I wrote on the issue:

    Ummmm if you read his message... he's the one who locked it... "while on vacation i locked it out there". There is NO way a retailer would know what the secure location was or what the PIN was. Even with a retailer's receipt, if the unit was a return or refurb and it was already registered by the original owner, Garmin isn't going to help you. Believe me..... I know this from personal experience....

Garmin nuvi 1200 showing no map data available


The reason for this message is probably that the map is either unselected or locked. You can get the solution to this problem at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing

There's more information there than you need so you can start at paragraph 5 to select the map or paragraph 2 to unlock it.

I FORGET MY PIN # FOR THE GARMIN NUVI 660 HOW DO I OPEN THE LOCK


To unlock your unit you must go with-in 50 meters of your SECURITY LOCATION , that is the place you first setup your GPS, it could of been your home or office.

Once there the unit will automatically unlock, reset your pin number at that time in the Security menu.

If you cant get to the Security location you must send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipts of ownership.

There should be a small pinhole for a reset button. Press and hold this reset button for 60 seconds. Then turn the device back on.

My garmin nuvi 660 is asking me for a pin and i done have it. i need help


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.

No unlock code for Garmin Nuvi 660


Sorry but that is a security feature. There is a chance you've purchased a stolen unit from ebay. Unfortunately, only Garmin can unlock it and they will require a receipt from a Garmin dealer.

Owners can select a pin code to use which locks the unit preventing use by theives. Sat Nav theft is a big market. The unit needs to be sent to Garmin who will verify you are the registered owner and unlock it for you. If you bought at a market is there a good chance it may have been stolen?
