I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

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. In your case you may wish to post the unit to friends or relatives near to where you lived and tell them where to take the unit.

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.

How can i unlock my garmin gps? i accidently locked my gps and i dont remember my password.


If you forgot your PIN, take the unit to the location at which you entered the PIN. The unit will unlock, and you can turn off the Garmin lock or enter a different PIN.

I think I did something wrong, it gave me a new password, then ask me to create a new password, how can I create a new pass word when the system only know the old pass word


The Garmin NEVER "creates" a PIN. You can choose a PIN and you can choose to change the PIN. If you have entered a PIN that you do not remember, you can take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.

Okay when i went to turn on my Garmin nuvi 260 it ask me for a pin or password and i forgot it. Then it says to go to your safe location and i dont remember if i set one of those. So how do i unlock it?


Your safe location is where you entered the PIN number (probably your driveway). If it still won't unlock, send it to Garmin with your original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will reset it for you. There is no master unlock for the Garmin units, it must be reset by Garmin.

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.

Won't set to a new location


Remove the faceplate and you will see the reset button (right side). There is an indentation under the word GARMIN which you can use a finger nail to help lift the faceplate. Try resetting the Garmin.
