Try a reset: with the unit off, press with one finger the right upper corner of the display and in the same time switch on the unit. Good luck !

What is the code to unlock garmin 285 w

you bought a stolen device and the code was locked by the previous owner. The only way to get the code unlocked without knowing it is to take it back to where the code was set (previous owner?) then it will let you unlock without the code. Otherwise you bought a paperweight.

I cant unlock my garmin nuvi 200.

if you bought a locked satnav without a code you are either very stupid or handling stolen goods. And dont give the **** that you didnt realise or didnt check. No-one in their right minds buys a satnav without seeing it working.
If you still claim its legit then send it off to Garmin and they offer an unlocking service

Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the bezel.

Gently pull off the faceplate.

Press the reset button.

If it still asks for a code and you don't have it, it should ask you to drive to a secret location to unlock the device. If you don't know the location, the only other option you have is to send the unit to Garmin to be unlocked. You can also try to call Garmin with the serial number and see if they can do something less annoying to unlock it.

HOW CAN YOU UNLOCK A CODE LOCKED UNIT if you dont have the code?

No, unfortunately. You either need to drive to the secure place to unlock it, or contact Garmin to have it unlocked. Once unlocked, I would recommend turning Garmin Lock OFF.

My kids locked my garmin nuvi 260w all my screen says is enter pin in i dont know it

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.
