There are two options for you:
1) try to make your son remember the security location he chose, a specific geographic spot
2) send it to Garmin service for unlocking

Good luck!

My child locked my garmin660


there are only three things you can do.
  1. return to the secure location where the password was set and it will unlock
  2. provide proof of purchase and return it to garmin to unlock it.
  3. punish the child untill they tell you the code.
the last was was meant to be funny but hey, you never know what theyll do if you threaten to take away their XBOX 360 ;)

good luck..bill

The detailed maps are "locked" all of a sudden!


If this is still happening then go to Kenwood direct, they supplied the unit with the pre loaded software and therefore they should deal with the problem as they are not supposed to lock the software. Kenwood if need be will contact Garmin for you. You may find that they have experienced this problem with other users too.

Child put in random code and locked nuvi 260 gps


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you can remember the PIN Code previously set on your device you will be able to change the Pin on your device easily. You can change the PIN on the unit by doing the following:
All Nuvi's excluding 3xx and 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Security
  5. Touch On/Off under Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.

When the Garmin security lock is set it locates the units current GPS location.
If you are trying to change the Garmin Lock and are not within the same location to where the Garmin Lock was set you will need to revert back to this GPS position.

Once at this position you will not be prompted to enter the PIN Code when starting the device up and can change the code as you please

My son accidentaly put a lock code on my garmin nuvi 680 is there any way to get into it again


Where did he do it at? All you have to do is go to that location and when you turn it on it won't ask for the pin. Other wise, you need to send it back to Garmin.

You will have to send it back to Garmin showing proof of purchase. Garmin will clear the PIN.

Safe mode only prevents you from using the complicated while you're in motion.

Garmin lock prevents people from using it without knowing the 4 digit pin.

If you turn on Garmin Lock while you're at home, it will automatically unlock the unit when you're at home. Otherwise you'll have to remember the 4 digit pin to unlock the unit.

The Safe mode can definitely be disabled when you're on the road. Not so sure about the Garmin Lock since it's supposed to prevent a burglar from using it.
