Hi

You have two options,
if you have set a security location, please go there with the gps

What is a Security Location?
You can set any location, such as your home or office, for your security location. If you are at your security location, you do not need to enter a pin.
(the secure location must have satellite coverage)

if you haven't set a security location, and you have tried all possible pins that you could have used (4digit)

Then you have to send your gps to garmin to get it unlocked, you will most likely also have to proof your identity and provide proof or purchase / ownership of the gps incase its stolen.

There is no way to unlock this over the internet, and we can't verify if you are the real owner of the unit. You must send your unit to garmin to get it unlocked please call or email them or your dealer before sending the unit.

Forgotten my pin number for garmin and my secret location. how can i access/reset it please?


Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to reset Garmin Street Pilot C550:

1. Remove the front plate of the c550 by sliding your finger under the groove in the plate below the Garmin mark on the plate.

2. Push the now-exposed reset button. The reset button is located on the same side of the c550 as the power cable connector.

3. Plug the c550 into an external power source to restart the c550 after you have reset it. The factory default settings will be restored.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

My gps garmin is block i need the code to get it on blocck is a street pilot c550 its asking for a pn number


You can take it to your home location. You set it when you first choose a code. When you go home the unit will unlock itself and at that time you will want to reset the pin code. I hope this was some help

Cheers

Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin. Be aware, however, if you are not the owner of record, they will not return the GPS unit to you.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

Don't remember my pin


The only ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin are to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
