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.

SOURCE: i forgot my pass code to unlock my nuvi

This is a scripted massage, take what you need from it.

If it is the garmin lock you are referring to, you need to enter the security number you programmed into in on initial set up. If you do not have or remember the code, then the GPS must be turned on in its secure site, this is where ever you were when you set up the garmin. Driveway, backyard, etc. If you don't have access to either of these then the unit has to be returned to garmin to have it unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

Unlock garmin nuvi 680


Hello,

The Garmin security lock can only be unlocked or changed with the 4 digit pass code.
The pass code can only be reset by entering the original pass code or sending it to Garmin to be reset.

Contact Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

I forgot my passcode for my gsrmin nuvi 250w cause i was over seas for a year


Unless you created a security location there is not way to reset the password other than having Garmin do it for you. When you set your password your GPS would have given you the chance to set a location. That way if you forgot your password you could drive to your location and be able to turn on and use your GPS without inputting the code. You could then go through the menu system and wipe out the need for a password. Now you'll have to send your GPS, along with your receipt, to Garmin, They will reset your password for you and send the unit back to you.

Yes, take the unit back to the security location you set, and it will automatically unlock and you can then reset the password code.

How to reset password ,forgot it


You need some type sharp (but not as sharp as a pin...don't use that) object to trigger the switch. I have used the ball tip of a ball point pen to do the reset. You will receive no on-screen message that the unit has been reset so don't look for one.

One way to tell if you have triggered the reset switch would be to have the unit turned on when you do it. The unit will then reboot indicating that you have triggered the switch and reset the unit.

I forgot my password how can i unlock it


When you went through the password process you also had to set up your secret place in case you forgot your password. Go to your secret place and your Garmin will unlock and you can reset your password.
Hope this helps

Forgot password on my garmin 255W


Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi205_OwnersManual.pdf

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.
