Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

On my garmin streetpilot 7200 it says maps are locked...


I'm not sure if the street pilot is the same as the garmin nuvi. There are details of how to unlock Garmin Nuvi satnav maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
There's more information there than you'll need but you can skip to the part on unlocking maps. I'd imagine the street pilot wouldn't be a whole lot different from the nuvi as they're both made by garmin.

My gps garmin is block i need the code to get it on blocck is a street pilot c550 its asking for a pn number


You can take it to your home location. You set it when you first choose a code. When you go home the unit will unlock itself and at that time you will want to reset the pin code. I hope this was some help

Cheers

Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin. Be aware, however, if you are not the owner of record, they will not return the GPS unit to you.

Pin code for garmin nuvi 260


Find out where your "friend" did the code. If you don't know what it is, then you have to go back to that exact location where they did it and it will automatically unlock it for you. Then you can follow the instructions below:

Answer: 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:
Zumo's, Street Pilot Cxx, Nuvi 3xx, 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch the Spanner symbol
  3. Touch System
  4. Touch On/Off next to Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.
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.

Unlock c510


Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

Don't remember my pin


The only ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin are to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
