You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

I forgot my code to my 1350 garmin nuvi navigation system. i need to know how do i reset my 1350 garmin nuvi navigational systems


Going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

I forgot my pin code for the nuvi265 I dont know any way to get it to reset.

You can take it back to your security location which you set when you entered the PIN code. It will then automatically unlock and you can change the PIN code to something you will remember.

I forgot my four degit pin to my garmin nuvi 265 gps

Either bring it to the location where you programmed the code or send it back to garmin2_bing.gif. this is an anti-theft feature.
That is the only way to fix it.

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.

Forgot my password, need a reset code

To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.
