Sorry, no easy answer here. But if your "friend" has the code you're all set. If not, do you know the location within 150 feet of where the code was entered in the GPS? Yes? Go there and it will unlock automatically.
No? Then your kinda screwed. Try this:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

Can`t enter pin number


You may need to reset the Nuvi. The reset button should be on the bottom of the unit. This will not reset the pin. If you have set a safety location, driving to that location should also unlock the Nuvi. To have the pin reset you must send the unit to Garmin with a receipt or proof of purchase.

I have a Garmin 250 w that is locked with a pin # or a security location. Is there anyway to unlock it? Thanks


You have to go with 50 meters of the SECURITY location for the unit to unlock automatically, your security location is the place you set up your gps on the first day. you could of been at home or work

once unlocked you must reset the pin number

or you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper ownership receipt. All garmins are registered to unlock map data.

Take the unit to the location at which you first entered the PIN. This is the Security Location. The unit will unlock and you can reset the PIN.

Unlock garmin nuvi 250w


You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

My son locked my gps how can I unlock it


Unless you have the pin number you cannot unlock it I'm afraid. Your only option is to send it to garmin with proof of ownership to have it unlocked. Garmin say this is to prevent anyone who steals one being able to use it.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


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.

Gps is locked i dont know the pin to unlock it and i dont know the security location either.


Those are the only two ways to unlock the GPS without contacting Garmin. If you call them and provide the serial number they may be able to unlock it.
