    Same problem. I got this from a pawn shop and figured out the code which was 00000. Then it locked again after the battery fully drained, keeps doing that. We've figured it out plenty of times by just pushing various patterns of numbers. I'm not sure how but I'm getting tired of wasting my time trying to figure out the code when I really need it.

If you don't remember the PIN you set, take the unit back to the location at which you set the PIN. This is your Security Location. The unit will unlock and you can reset the PIN. I hope this helps.

Reset password


In order to reset the password, you have to turn the unit on and enter the correct password. When the unit comes on, there will be an icon at the bottom that looks like a wrench. Press this button. Now press the botton on the top center that says, "System." Next, press the button that says "On" next to "Garmin Lock." You will then have the option to change your PIN. If you are looking to reset a password you do not have, you must take the unit to the location at which the original PIN was set. If you do not know this, you must return the unit to Garmin.

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.

My brother in-law pass away, no one know the password to his garmin how can I get a new password.


Remove the silver trim ring carefully using a small screwdriver. After you remove this, you will see a reset button on the right side. Push this in and it should clear the password.

We need to reset the password. We cannot remember the old one


passwords can be reset when you take it to its secret place, which is where you set the password in the first place. If this is a stolen GPS it will not give up its password by any method other than taking it to where it was entered.

Thanks for using FIXYA

Lock


If it is the garmin lock, then you need to take the unit to your sercure area, and the unit will unlock. This should be where ever it was you set up the unit.
If you don't remember either. Then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

Garmin c550 unlock pin#


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.
