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.

How do you reset ur password on a garmin nuvi 200w? i just bought a used garmin nuvi 200w but i dont know the pin for it. so how do i change the pin if i dont know the original pin?


The only way you can register that gps is have the original owner call Garmin and have them release it from his account, otherwise you could not use it or get it registered..... all Garmin GPS are registered to unlock maps....and all have a SECURITY FEATURE in them in case of lost or stolen.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 200 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.

How to unlock a garmin 200 gps?..lost password


Ask him WHERE he set the PIN. This is the Security Location and the unit will unlock and allow you to reset or remove it.

Forgot pin code


Performing a reset will NOT reset the PIN. There are only three ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. This is the Security Location.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If you are unable to provide proof of purchase to Garmin, however, they will NOT return the unit to you.

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.

If you forgot your password, Garmin lock has an option to unlock it by going to the location the password was set. This is called security location, usually your home or the drive way.
