SOURCE: how do I reset the password on my Garmin Nuvi

Take it back to the exact place where the password was set. Once the GPS is at the coordinates it will let you change the PW. This is an anti theft security and cannot be over ridden.

Why wont my computer recong my garmin


To let a computer work with a Garmen, you need to install software that came with your GPS. On the disk are also all drivers for all known operating systems.
First install the software, than connect.

    UNLOCK GARMIN 260W


    Take it back to the security location and it will automatically unlock. If this is not possible, send it in to Garmin with original receipt from Garmin dealer and they will unlock it for you. If this is not possible, the unit is permanently locked - there is no master unlock code.

    Don't have password


    Maybe your Garmin works like my Garmin, not same model but anyway.

    If you have forgotten the password, then drive to the physical unlocking place that you selected when setting the password. No password is required if you start the GPS at that place.

    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.

    Garmin Nuvi GPS 260W not working


    A file is probably missing or corrupt in your Nuvi. You can call Garmin at 1-800-800-1020 and their software techs can remotely connect to your computer to check the files on your GPS to see if they are ok or not. There is a method where they create a file with your 25 digit unlock code in a certain directory to unlock the maps, but that information can only be received from Garmin.
