A hard reset will not remove the embedded PIN code. This is a security feature on the Garmin GPS's. You either must have the PIN code, or take the unit back to the security location. Without a receipt from an authorized dealer, you are out of luck... Garmin will not reset it for you without a receipt.

Have you tried a hard reset? This is described in the manual. You have to remove the bezel to do this. It is like a restore function on a PC

GPS C550 ASKING FOR pin after 4 months used


Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was originally entered.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If it IS stolen (if you bought it off craigslist.com, how do you know for sure it isn't?) it will be returned to the original owner and you will be out the money you spent. There is NO workaround this SECURITY feature.

GARMIN C550


Hi Don,

 

You probably just need to find the reciept where you bought the C550.  Sounds like Garmin is protecting its customers when they say $300.  This is most unfortunate thing to happen to you.  Is the Garmin $300 issue as I thought and related to you not having the registration code or Reciept?

Need factory default for a garmin streetpilot c550 gps or pin unlock code?


There is no factory default unlock PIN code. You will need to take the unit back to your security location and it will automatically unlock.

Is it asking for PIN? If so, this is your security number you entered when you got the GPS. If you can't remember it, take the GPS back to the 'security location' you entered. It will automatically unlock and you can reset the PIN.

ASKING FOR A PIN


The only way to unlock a PIN locked unit is to enter the correct PIN number, 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.

When you turn it on it should ask for a 4 digit PIN.  If you don't remember the PIN move the GPS to the same location where the PIN was originally set.
