Re: gamin nuvi 310

You can send your unit to Garmin and they'll reset it. You will need to include proof of purchase.

Can i get free up dates on maps on gamin nuvi 310

The only time garmin gives free map updates is if a new map becomes available within 60 days of the first time your satnav accesses satellites. If you think you're entitled to a free update go through the update procedure as described at If there's an update available click on get update. If you're entitled to it free it will bring you to the download page. If you're not entitled to it free it'll bring you to the payments page.

How do i unlock my garmin nuvi 310 deluxe

If you have a PIN number on your device you will have been asked to set a security location. When you are at your security location or within approximately 50 metres of your security location the device will unlock without the PIN number.

I forgot my passcode for my gsrmin nuvi 250w cause i was over seas for a year

Unless you created a security location there is not way to reset the password other than having Garmin do it for you. When you set your password your GPS would have given you the chance to set a location. That way if you forgot your password you could drive to your location and be able to turn on and use your GPS without inputting the code. You could then go through the menu system and wipe out the need for a password. Now you'll have to send your GPS, along with your receipt, to Garmin, They will reset your password for you and send the unit back to you.

I lost my pin for my gamin nuvi

You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS.

Garmin nuvi

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.

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.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi

You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

Created a password and forgot it

When you first programmed the GPS you have the opportunity to select a safe location,
if you selected the safe location, go back to that location, and the lock will not be on, it is for the reason of forgetting it, but it will only work in that location ~ ( ie: your old driveway )
If you cannot do this,
it's a Garmin job to unlock it,
There is no other way to unlock it.
