The only options you have when it comes to a locked unit is to enter the correct PIN, go to the location where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin. There is no way to unlock a PIN locked unit without the correct PIN or location.

I FORGET MY PIN # FOR THE GARMIN NUVI 660 HOW DO I OPEN THE LOCK


To unlock your unit you must go with-in 50 meters of your SECURITY LOCATION , that is the place you first setup your GPS, it could of been your home or office.

Once there the unit will automatically unlock, reset your pin number at that time in the Security menu.

If you cant get to the Security location you must send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipts of ownership.

How to remove a forgotten PIN from Garmin Nuvi satnav


Nearly every day there's a question asked by Garmin Nuvi satnav owners as to how to change or remove their PIN which they have forgotten. Ideally you should use a PIN that you will never forget or save it somewhere you can get access to it again if you do forget it. However we all make mistakes and so a lot of users end up on this website looking for a solution.

1.
When you set your PIN you get an option to set a Security Location. When you set this your satnav must have satellite reception. When you forget your PIN you go to your Security Location and the satnav will start up without you having to enter the PIN, provided you have a satellite connection. As you cannot see the signal strength bar until you get past the PIN entry screen you won't know if it has accessed satellites or not so you need to give it a while. Also as GPS is not one hundred percent accurate you may need to move around five to ten metres in a gradually widening circle from the security location. This gives you a better chance of getting the exact spot. If all is well your satnav should open but the PIN is still set. To remove the PIN when you get your satnav started
  • Press TOOLS
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on some models which don't have the SETTINGS icon)
  • Press SECURITY
  • Press GARMIN LOCK ON
  • Press OFF
  • Press OK
Your PIN is now removed. If you want to set a new PIN
  • Press TOOLS
  • Then press SETTINGS (or LOCALE on models that don't have a settings icon)
  • Press SECURITY
  • Press GARMIN LOCK OFF
  • Press ON
  • Enter your new PIN
  • Press OK
You then get the option to set a new security location. Again be sure you have a satellite connection.

2. If you have forgotten your PIN but either have not set a security location or forget where it is the only option is to return it to Garmin to get it removed. You must send proof of ownership along with the satnav if you're returning it as the PIN is there to protect satnav owners from thieves. If you need to return the satnav to Garmin you can get their contact details at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

My kid was playing with my nuvi 200 and now it needs a unlock code what do i do


Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and even if the PIN s changed, they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.

My garmin nuvi 660 is asking me for a pin and i done have it. i need help


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."

So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

Someone changed my pin on nuvi 660


It can't be reset without entering the correct PIN or driving to the security location. Failing this, the unit must be sent back to Garmin.
