Unlock code for garmin nuvi 250


Only Garmin can unlock a a GPS with forgotten passcode. Contact Garmin Support to arrange for return to the factory. You'll need to provide proof of ownership / purchase, too.

Good luck!

Forgot pin want a code to unlock it


You are going to have to send this back to Garmin, they have a way to unlock the unit, but they are keeping it quiet, also have your cheque book ready, think they charge for this. Sorry

How can I unlock a passcoded Nuvi 265WT?


This GPS doesn't come pass code protected, that code is put in by the owner, so i must assume this is not your property.

I forgot the passcode.


the 205 used a dual security system in case your device is stolen. first is the 4 digit code, and second is when you set your code, you lso set a "my location". if you are out of the vicinity of "my location" you must use the passcode to unlock it. If you are in the vicinity, the gps will automatically unlock when you turn it on and avoid the passcode request. if you don't remember the passcode, or the "my location" point, you must send the device back to Garmin (along with proof of purchase-or your registered info)-to ensure it is not stolen-, and they will unlock it.

Yes, take it back to your security location which you set, and it will automatically unlock. Then enter a new passcode.

I forgot my passcode for my garmin nuvi 300 how can i reset 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.
