Ask the person you purchased it from to give you the password or claim you money back through ebay. It could be a stolen device.

I forgot my password


If you no longer want a PIN lock on your Garmin, unlock the unit by 1 - Entering the correct PIN or 2 - Taking the unit back to the location at which you originally entered the PIN. Once the unit is unlocked, press the icon at the bottom of the screen that looks like a wrench. Then press "System", and "On" next to "Garmin Lock." Then press "Off." The unit will no longer ask for a PIN on startup.

Bought a garmin 760 gps on e-bay seller was a pawn shop and unit requires a pin numer to use unit. How do I clear old pin number and install a new one?


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.

I purchased a Garmin 200 GPS off ebay, it is locked, I tried registering it on the Garmin website to get the unlock codes but was told the serial number I entered was already registered. I there any other...


Looks like the person who sold you the GPS has already used the unlock code so you should go back to the seller and ask for a refund as it is not possible to get round the unlock code.

Password problems


it sounds like its trying to access a plus service that would require logging in. You need to perform a hard reset of the device
