Locked out of my nuvi 255w askin for a 4 digit num code bought it from a friend of a friend help plz


This problem cannot be solved. You will need to send it to Garmin with an original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer in order to have Garmin reset the password. Otherwise, you will need the friend of a friend to give you the PIN to unlock it. This is a security feature on the Garmins and cannot be bypassed.

How can i unlock my garmin nuvi 200. what steps do i have to do to access my garmin.i bought my garmin from a friend who got it at a pawnshop.and its asking me for a pin that i do not have.can you help me?


Since you bought the device used, it's likely the previous owner did not clear the passwords and data. Short of tracking down the previous owner, there is no way to unlock the unit without doing a factory reset. Here's a guide to reset the Garmin GPS units to their original factory settings.

Garmin nuvi 250 forgot pin number, what do I do


It has to go back to garmin, the pin is written to non volatile memory, so a power interruption wont erase it. Garmin will reset it, if you are not the original owner and it is reported stolen Garmin will notify the police.

Basically the memory has to be flashed by garmin, sorry it is not what you want to hear, but don't dammage your gps trying to reset it by opening it up, that only voids the warranty and will cost you more money.

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.

Forgot my password, need a reset code


To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.
