    NO. If there was, what would be the point of having a PIN?

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.

I recently bought a garmin c550 from ebay and the screen it is locked i need to know how to unlock the screen do not have the unlock code can you help ?


Garmin's security code is setup in such a way that if you forget the code you can drive to a previously set "security" location which would then allow you to turn on the machine without the code.You could then use the menu system to clear the code. What you will have to do is either try to get the code from the person you bought it from or send in the unit and a copy of your receipt to Garmin to have them clear the code.

Need unlock code for garmin c550 . I found it in a car when i used to transportate cars to dealers. Was a avis rental. Think the garmin is owned by them. Dont mind returning it but i want it. It not...


Sorry. 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 entered.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin.

If you send the unit to Garmin to unlock and they determine you are not the owner of record, they will return the unit to the rightful owner.

Hello i have a garmin c550 gps and for some reason it blocked on me i forgot my pin nunber i guess... i dont know how to reset it and i dont have my manual with me....


The manual would not help you. Resetting the unit (even a Master Reset) will NOT remove or reset the PIN. Your 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 set.
3 - Return the unit to Garmin.

I need unlock garmin c550


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.

Garmin c550 unlock pin#


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.

Your first problem was purchasing the unit the way you did. If you purchased it legitimately, you would not have this issue. Your only solutions are to enter the correct PIN number, take the unit to where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin.
