Take the unit back to your secure location and it will automatically unlock. You can then reset the PIN code.

Forgot security for garmin 1350


If this is the security PIN number, 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.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

Take the unit back to your security location which you set when you set the PIN code. Turn the antenna up, and it will automatically unlock. You can then reset the PIN code.

My wife entered the wrong pin number by accident on the nuvi 750. She tried turning the unit off and then back on to reset back to "enter pin" code mode however she gets the response "you must return to...

If you turn the unit off, wait about ten seconds and turn it back on, yes, it should go back to the "Enter PIN" screen. If, however, you turn it off then immediately turn it back on it will continue to tell you to return to the security location.

Hi, the pin was changed but didnt used it for a while but forgot the pin?

Take the unit back to the location at which you changed the PIN. This is the Security Location. The unit will unlock, and you can change the PIN again.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi

You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

How do I unlock this Garmin nuvi 200 GPS?

Unfortunately no. You'll either have to get the PIN somehow, or send the unit to Garmin to be unlocked. I would first call Garmin and see if there is anything less annoying you can do to unlock it. Perhaps if you provide the serial number they can do something.

Pin code for garmin nuvi 260

Find out where your "friend" did the code. If you don't know what it is, then you have to go back to that exact location where they did it and it will automatically unlock it for you. Then you can follow the instructions below:

Answer: If you can remember the PIN Code previously set on your device you will be able to change the Pin on your device easily. You can change the PIN on the unit by doing the following:
Zumo's, Street Pilot Cxx, Nuvi 3xx, 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch the Spanner symbol
  3. Touch System
  4. Touch On/Off next to Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.
All Nuvi's excluding 3xx and 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Security
  5. Touch On/Off under Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.

When the Garmin security lock is set it locates the units current GPS location.
If you are trying to change the Garmin Lock and are not within the same location to where the Garmin Lock was set you will need to revert back to this GPS position.

Once at this position you will not be prompted to enter the PIN Code when starting the device up and can change the code as you please.
