SOURCE: forgot pin number

The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

SOURCE: Garmin C530 need pin to unlock

Have you tried putting the unlock code in the main directory?  To do this open up notepad or some similar text program and copy the code from the yellow sheet onto the note pad and save it as GMAPPROM.UNL.  Then open "My Computer" and locate the Garmin removable device.  Open the "Garmin" folder and copy that file to it.  Safely remove it from your system and turn it on.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?

I can't believe you even admit to owning stolen property. 

Yes multiple attempts will lock the garmin, And you will only be able to unlock it by going to the security location that was used when the security pin was input into the system.

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.

Hi I have a GARMIN WHere2 since I got a rental car from AVIS but it suddenly asked me for a PIN CODE? Could you please support me with this?


Hello,

The Garmin
Lock (anti-theft feature) security feature has been activated.
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.
You may want to call the rental company and ask them for the pin code.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

I cant find my pin code and i cant remember it. how do i reset it?


The only way to reset it is if the unit was registered with Garmin. If it is registered under your name with Garmin they should be able to help you. You may need to provide proof of ownership. The pin number is a feature to prevent someone who steals the gps from using it. I will attach a link to Garmin support below.
Thanks for using FixYa

Reset pin


To reset your PIN, you will need to take it back to the security location and it will automatically unlock. You can then reset your PIN to a new number. If that is not possible, you will need to send it to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will reset the PIN for a small charge.

I need to know how to reset password to my garmin nuvi where2


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.
