Question about GPS
Well you definitely have a problem there... the internal software would need to be reloaded to remove the password.
Garmin doesn't let other people perform their repairs etc and there are no service documents available, the people who know how to do it are most likely only the techs at garmin.
can you connect it to your computer? have you tried the garmin web updater?
Let me know how it goes by adding a comment.

This Model cannot be unlocked by a special code. the only way to unlock this particular Nuvi is to send it to the manufacture. If they refused to service you and unlock this device, i would contact a lawyer immediately. They are obligated to service this device if it was purchased properly and it is not stolen.
The Lock code was set by the previous user and, that lock code can only be cleared by a Nuvi tech. these techs posses special tech gear that is tuned to reset the main board, via SAT signal. Its totally done through the air(remote link). I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't service you but, it dose not surprise me at all.
Just to clarify, You must send your Nuvi to Garmine to get it unlocked. You must also send a valid product registration or proof of purchase along with the Garmine device. this is the only way. if they refuse to service you, contact a lawyer immediately.
