If you forgot your PIN, all you have to do is go to the physical location where you originally set your PIN and turn the unit on (make sure antenna is up). It will not ask for a PIN and you will be then able to change the PIN to whatever you like.

Good Luck!

    You got a good point CB. I'm trying to help these people and they can't drive to where they originally set the PIN at and reset the GPS? Or perhaps the unit was stolen and they just want to recover the PIN so they can sell it for $$. Thanks for the inaaprropriate vote MR. GUEST. What goes around comes around.

I have had my 205W for 3 years and about 6 months ago I bought a 265WT for my second car. Both were bought new and are both registered to me and showing on Garmin's website. They were both bought in Florida and I have recently moved to Arizona. I cannot exactly run over to my original location to get it to reset. Also, as far as I'm aware, I've never set a pin on either one, and if I had I would use one of 3 variations and would have recorded them in a secure passwords program I use. Since none of the 3 possible pins works to unlock it, and there is no record of anything except my sign in password for the Garmin site and POI site, I am virtually certain I never set a PIN for this. It has never asked for a pin before and I have traveled all over the country with the 205 before I got the 265WT. Since they are registered, can I get this fixed through the Garmin website, or will I have to send it back in. Frankly for a unit that is designed to travel; the security location seems like a stupid idea.

If you don't know the security location, it will have to be sent in to be unlocked. I guess you could just try all the combinations... Only four digits, right?

The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. The only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

I don't know the pin for my Garmin Nuvi 255W. Help! I have used it a few times in the past. My granddaughter set up but she does not recall the pin either. Any way to bypass this or is there a way to...


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.

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???
