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.

My dauther was playing with my garmin nuvi 2360 now its asking for a pin? I never set one up and I dont see any default codes in my paperwork or manuel?


When you first used your GPS, it asked you for a safety location. Take the unit back to this safety location and it will unlock, you can then reset the PIN code. If not, send it back to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and, for a service charge, they will reset the PIN code.

Hi I have a GARMIN WHere2 since I got a rental car from AVIS but it suddenly asked me for a PIN CODE? Could you please support me with this?


Hello,

The Garmin
Lock (anti-theft feature) security feature has been activated.
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.
You may want to call the rental company and ask them for the pin code.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

I KEEP ASKING HOW TO UNLOCK MY 4 DIGIT LOST CODE ON MY GARMIN C550 STREETPILOT I PAID NO ANSWER


If you know where your father was when he locked it (according to garmin support page), you can go back to where he was when he locked it and it will automactically unlock without code. If you do not know the location you can google the phrase "garmin unlock utility", there you will find free downloads. Otherwise, Garmin will require original receipt and charge you a fee for the service. Hope this helps, good luck.

Garmin 660 sat nav


I would take it back and demand a new one or replacement one. Some how someone must of you your serial number to register there, and now garmin seem to think that yours is stolen. Even though it is not. Garmin will lock the unit if a product gets, stolen and if someone else will try to update.

I forgot my pin numbrer for garmin 205w. is there anyway to bypass security code


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.
