Just because you don't like the answer, it doesn't mean the answer is inappropriate, and you should not leave feedback indicating so. People take time to freely help others. Give the unit back, go buy another one and move on. I'd suggest you change your feedback to 'thanks for trying to help'. We here can't help if Garmin's security system can't be bypassed, that's why it's there.

My uncle died and in his will, he left me a Garmin Nuvi, but he died before giving me the code or location, so I can reset the code, can you help


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.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.

I cannot unlock the maps


Garmin mapping software comes with a security number. You need to contact Garmin and they will give you this number, if you purchased your maps through them or an authorized dealer.

My device displays a message that my primary maps have been deleted and i need to know how to reinstall them so mt garmin will work


What model is it? If you have a 2720 or 2730, and the original DVD with unlock code, run that on your PC. When asked, enter the unlock code into the program. Select all the maps by dragging the mouse across all of the US (hold down the left mouse botton). All the highlighted should turn "pink". Once selected, click on SEND TO UNIT and wait. This process can take some time. Once there, you shouldn't have a problem.
