GARMIN C550


Hi Don,

 

You probably just need to find the reciept where you bought the C550.  Sounds like Garmin is protecting its customers when they say $300.  This is most unfortunate thing to happen to you.  Is the Garmin $300 issue as I thought and related to you not having the registration code or Reciept?

I recenty received a used Garmin Nuvi and I can't access the previous owners pin number /security location number. Is there anyway to over-ride the existing pin number and create my own?


No. This is a security feature, and it would be useless if there were a work-around. There are only three options to unlock a PIN locked Garmin, and you already said you can't do two of them. The third would be to send the unit back to Garmin, but depending on HOW you obtained the unit, they may not help you.

Hi. I forgot the pin code for my nuvi310. can you help me please?


Garmin Pin codes are accessed ( when forgotten) By taking it back to the coordinates that it was first set. You would know where you were when you set the pin code. So just mosey on back there and once in place access your unit and reset the code.

There is no master code, that process IS the master code access

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

I tryed updating it but it erase all the maps on the gps


hello there here is a post for you Garmin provides a feature called "Garmin Lock", which allows the GPS owner to assign a (4) digit numeric unlock access code or PIN to their GPS. The PIN is designed to prevent your GPS from being used by an un-authorized user. It was also meant to be used a a deterrent to thieves, making the GPS useless if stolen. The PIN setup can be accessed by pressing the "wrench" symbol on the main menu (Nuvi Series). Next, press the "gear" symbol and you should see a listing for Garmin Lock. When you set up the PIN, you will be asked to enter in a (4) digit numeric code. After you enter the 4th digit, you will be asked again for the code. This is to make sure that both entries match and that verify that the PIN that you request will be the one written into memory. Your PIN is written into non-volatile memory..... it's not a file that is accessible via USB communications between the GPS and a PC. You can't clear it by disconnecting the power or disconnecting the battery or letting the battery run down. There is no jumper or switch inside the GPS to reset it, so don't waste your time tearing the GPS apart. Now, after you set the PIN, you will be asked to set the "secure" location. This can be anywhere.... your work location, home, local gas station, school, etc. In order to set the secure location, your antenna must be up and you have to have a satellite lock. If you don't have a lock, the "set" key will be grayed out until you acquire a lock. The secure location is your "back-up key" in case you forget your PIN. If you have forget your pin, all you have to do is physically go to the secure location. Make sure your antenna is up and that you have a satellite lock. When you are in the secure location, your GPS will NOT ask you for the PIN when you turn it on. You'll then be able to reach the main menu and change the PIN and secure location to something else if you desire. If you have forgot both the PIN and secure location you are out of luck. You'll have to send your unit back to Garmin to have it unlocked. Garmin may charge you for this service. Note: If you do send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked and you are found not to be the original owner of the GPS and it's determined to be stolen, Garmin will contact law enforce

Garmin nuvi 300 asking for pin number


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.
