SOURCE: i forgot my pass code to unlock my nuvi

This is a scripted massage, take what you need from it.

If it is the garmin lock you are referring to, you need to enter the security number you programmed into in on initial set up. If you do not have or remember the code, then the GPS must be turned on in its secure site, this is where ever you were when you set up the garmin. Driveway, backyard, etc. If you don't have access to either of these then the unit has to be returned to garmin to have it unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: forgot my password, need a reset code

To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.

SOURCE: I FORGOT MY PASSWORD TO MY GPS GARMIN NUVI

Did you set a "home" point? If you did, drive to that point, and it should unlock. You can then change your password to something you remember. :-) If not, you can send it to Garmin, along with proof of purchase, and they will unlock it for you.

SOURCE: i forgot my password

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.

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.

My garmin nuvi 2495lm wont turn on at all


try leaving it plugged into wall power overnight to make sure it's not a low battery. Otherwise, if nothing changes when you plug it into the computer it sounds dead. Hope it is in warranty, otherwise I think Garmin will give you a trade in value towards a working unit or repair it at reduced cost. Call them at 1800-800-1020

Mapsource cannot see Garmin 2495LMT


Yes.... it sucks, use BaseCamp instead.

If importing GPX files. Dont drag or copy into GPX folder. You must select file and use 'Send to device' button just under the 'File' menu.

If you forgot your password, Garmin lock has an option to unlock it by going to the location the password was set. This is called security location, usually your home or the drive way.

I forgot my password how can i unlock it


When you went through the password process you also had to set up your secret place in case you forgot your password. Go to your secret place and your Garmin will unlock and you can reset your password.
Hope this helps

Forgot password on my garmin 255W


Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi205_OwnersManual.pdf

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.

Forgot garmin password


you need to return to the location (home) where you set the password. At home location, it does not ask for password.
