Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

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

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.

If It is locked up (Software) then remove the faceplate and press the reser button.


Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: need factory default for a garmin streetpilot c550 gps or pin unlock code?

There is no factory default unlock PIN code. You will need to take the unit back to your security location and it will automatically unlock.

Enter your PIN number, or take the unit back to the "Security Location" and it will unlock by itself. You can then enter a new PIN unlock code.

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.

Garmin C550 Locked


Nope. Take the unit back to your security location which you sent when you first got the GPS. Without knowing the PIN or security location, you will not be able to unlock the unit. You will have to send it in to Garmin to be unlocked, and you will have to include your receipt from an authorized dealer.

Code problem


to reset the c550 place your thumbnail in the groove located under the garmin logo on the faceplate. Gently pull off the faceplate and press the reset button then connect to a power source and the unit should automaticly turn back on.

Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

Safe mode only prevents you from using the complicated while you're in motion.

Garmin lock prevents people from using it without knowing the 4 digit pin.

If you turn on Garmin Lock while you're at home, it will automatically unlock the unit when you're at home. Otherwise you'll have to remember the 4 digit pin to unlock the unit.

The Safe mode can definitely be disabled when you're on the road. Not so sure about the Garmin Lock since it's supposed to prevent a burglar from using it.
