No, A GPS only has a receiver. It does not have a transmitter that can be used for locating. If you know your Nuvi's serial number and User ID number, you might want to report it to Garmin as well as your local Police. If the unit is ever turned into Garmin for repair, they will notify the authorities and you will get it back.

You can also post your stolen Nuvi here as well:

Car GPS units are receivers only. They do not have a transmitter that can be used for tracking. I am sorry that it was stolen. Report it to Garmin and the police. Also, post it at the following link so people can be made aware of it:

Is there away I can track my GPS it was stolen


Unfortunately no! the GPS system acts as a receiver to pickup satellite signals so you can triangulate your position, in order to track your property it would require a transmitter that is unique to the system.

Do you have someone we can contact by telephone? Our Garmin was stolen. Can you track where it is if someone is using it? Thank you, Larry


Unfortunately not. Garmin units only receive signals, they don't also send out signals of their location. Hopefully, you used the security system installed on the unit and the thief won't be able to use the unit.

My GPS was stolen


Only if you GPS is working, or in stand by. The manufacturer garmin should normaly be able to get the info if the stoler is using the GPS.

You have specific codes to the GPS, if you have it, you should be able to get in touch with garmin. (not all manufacturers provide this service.

Stolen garmin


No, the unit can not be tracked by radio signals as its a receive only device, however I would contact garmin and let them know (in addition to your local police dept.) that it has been stolen. If you buy a new GPS there are measures you can take to prevent theft & help recover a stolen GPS. Please see this link:

Someone took my garmin nuvi 250w can i track it?


sadly, no. garmin and most GPS devices are strictly GPS receivers, meaning they do not output any kind of signal that can be tracked. If your device has been stolen, i recommend that you register your device if it is not already registered with Garmin.

Sorry, no. Report serial number and internal ID number(if known) to Garmin and the Police. If a map is ever unlocked for it or it comes in for repair at least Garmin will know.

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???
