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.

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.

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.
