I forget unlock pin for garmin 265w serial number 1r2158775

Only way to have the unit unlocked is to enter the correct PIN # or take the unit to the area where the PIN was set and it will auto-unlock. Last option is to send the unit to Garmin. More info can be found here:

I dont know the pin number for my garmin

You must return to with-in 50 meters of the SECURITY LOCATION of where you first setup your gps to automatically unlock your gps and reset Pin Number

most are set up at your home or office location

The only other way is to send your gps back to GARMIN to have it unlocked with the proper receipt of ownership

All Garmins GPS are registered before maps are unlocked so they would have a record of your serial number on hand with your proper name and address..... if the unit was transfered to you the original owner must call garmin with the information

Pin code unlock

You have Garmin Lock activated and there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it).

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.

Garmin want me to out in serial num which i have but dont know where to find garmin product where do i find valid product

The serial number is on the side panel of the box, and additionally at the multi pin connector on the bottom of the unit. Hold the unit with the connector facing up and the front screen pointing away from you.
There will be a decal with 17D0xxxxx at the connector. I was surprised there is no yellow sheet with this mode, it alson has the serial number on it
When you call Garmin to order Mapsource, have your serial # handy and ask for an unlock code for the maps.

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.

Garmin Quest 2 GPS Look on the screen for "GPS Devices". Click on that and it will take you to a page of pull down menus. Find the Garmin menu and just look for "Quest". Battery is about $25.

Transfer data

Hello tompkin,

Programming the Garmin Rhino 120 using a PC requires an interface kit and may also require a RS-232 to USB converter cable or a 9-pin to 25-pin serial adapter depending on what interface is available on your computer.

The interface kit and cables are available on the manufacturer’s homepage for the product: Click on the “Accessories” tab and scroll down.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken
