SOURCE: garmin nuvi 250 forgot pin number, what do I do

It has to go back to garmin, the pin is written to non volatile memory, so a power interruption wont erase it. Garmin will reset it, if you are not the original owner and it is reported stolen Garmin will notify the police.

Basically the memory has to be flashed by garmin, sorry it is not what you want to hear, but don't dammage your gps trying to reset it by opening it up, that only voids the warranty and will cost you more money.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?

I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???

    If you turn the unit off, wait about ten seconds and turn it back on, yes, it should go back to the "Enter PIN" screen. If, however, you turn it off then immediately turn it back on it will continue to tell you to return to the security location.

    I forgot my pin and I need to unlock it

    The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location.
    To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
    1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
    2. Touch Settings.
    3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
    4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
    5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
    6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
    7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
    8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
    9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
    The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.

    Forgot pin


    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.
