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.

You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Take the GPS back to where you set your "Security Location" (probably same place where you also set your PIN number when you first turned on your new GPS). It will automatically unlock there, and you can then set a new PIN code. If you can't take it back to your "Security Location", you will need to send it to Garmin with a copy of your receipt from a Garmin dealer.

Unlock pin nuvi 350


You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

I have a garmin nuvi gps and my sone lock it now we cant get it unlockwat can i do


Take it to where your son locked it and it will automatically unlock. If not, you have to send it to Garmin with the original receipt and they will unlock it for you. There may be a service charge for this. If you don't have the original receipt, they will not unlock it.

The only ways 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.

Each map is locked to the unit serial number. The only way to get the map to work on another unit is to buy the maps and register the map serial number and you will receive a unlock code from garmin.

Go to the following link to unlock the map
