Re: Garmin C550 Locked
Nope. Take the unit back to your security location which you sent when you
first got the GPS. Without knowing the PIN or security location, you
will not be able to unlock the unit. You will have to send it in to
Garmin to be unlocked, and you will have to include your receipt from
an authorized dealer.

If it is the garmin lock, then you need to take the unit to your sercure area, and the unit will unlock. This should be where ever it was you set up the unit.
If you don't remember either. Then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.
If It is locked up (Software) then remove the faceplate and press the reser button.

The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Other than that, your only other option is to send the unit back to Garmin.
