How do I unlock this Garmin nuvi 200 GPS?

I bought this GPS from a pawnshop and it has a pin and nobody seems to have the code for it. Is there a way for me to be able to take the pin off?

    The manufacturer will NOT give you any information by phone. They do not know if you are the rightful owner or not. Please know that if the unit is sent into them and it's determined to be on their reported stolen list, they will keep the unit and notify the proper authorities. We post stolen unit information, as requested by the rightful owner's on our website in the hopes of locating the units and returning them.http://www.sharc.net/gps_theft_report_ce... - Jim

Unfortunately no. You'll either have to get the PIN somehow, or send the unit to Garmin to be unlocked. I would first call Garmin and see if there is anything less annoying you can do to unlock it. Perhaps if you provide the serial number they can do something.

I just bought a nuvi 205w from a pawn shop and they could not tell what the pin was to unlock it. How can I make my new gps functional again?


Once the pin number is entered the only way to change it or remove it, if you don't know it, is to send it back to garmin with proof of ownership. This is to stop thieves being able to use them. If you got a receipt from the pawnshop that should do as proof. If not it would be a good idea to go back and ask for one. Garmin contact details can be had at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

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.

Bought garmin nuvi 200 and seller didn't provide pin number


Take it back to the seller and try to get your money back. The seller does not provide the PIN number. The new user sets the PIN number and the security location. If you purchased this from a Garmin dealer, send it to Garmin with your original receipt and they will unlock it for you. If you purchased it privately, it was probably stolen. Garmin will not reset without an original receipt from a dealer.

My kid was playing with my nuvi 200 and now it needs a unlock code what do i do


Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and even if the PIN s changed, they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.
