Question about Garmin nuvi® 200 Car GPS Receiver
There is no way to perform a master rest to clear the PIN. You either have to have the PIN number or contact Garmin to unlock it for you for a fee. I would first try turning the unit on where your brother lived or where he worked and the unit will not ask for the PIN. This is called the safe location. You can then change the PIN. He probably set the PIN at some place where he knows well.

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???

Sorry but there is no master reset. If it was a gift, tell whoever bought it for you what happened and let them exchange it for you. If it has a security code on it, that means someone else had it before you. New units do not come from the factory with a PIN.
I have had success in unlocking Nuvi's but I will only do it for people who have a valid purchase receipt from a major retail chain and if they can provide me with their Garmin registration info so I can verify that they are the rightful owner.
There are too many of these units out there that are stolen and the culprits are looking for a way to bypass the PIN. This is why Garmin added this feature to their GPS's.
