Re: Change Pin for GPS

Look for a small hole and stick the end of a paper clip into the hole to reset the GPS

I just purchased a slightly used Garmin NuVi 750 GPS unit and don't have the pin number. What can I do to change the access pin number? Thanks, Larry


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.

Someone entered a PIN, and you'll have re-enter it to use the GPS again. The only people that can unlock it is the person that entered the PIN and Garmin. You'll have to contact one or the other. Be prepared to provide "proof of purchase" when talking to Garmin - as they won't unlock it "just because".

You can contact Garmin Technical Support directly, here.

Unlock gps 760 garmin ilost the 4 pin number

The only way to do it is to go to the location you set as "home" in the GPS. When you are at that location, the GPS will not ask you for a PIN and you can then go in and change the PIN.

If you don't know what the home location is, you'll need to contact Garmin

There are so many of these being stolen from vehicles, the PIN is designed to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!

Forgot pin code

Performing a reset will NOT reset the PIN. There are only three ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. This is the Security Location.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If you are unable to provide proof of purchase to Garmin, however, they will NOT return the unit to you.

Forgot my pin

Wedll if this is not a stolen GPS Then the matter is simple. Take it back to the exact coordinates that you set the pin in. Then you will be able to access the pin setup and reset it to a new password. Your only other choice is to send it to Garmin, but if it has been listed as stolen, then expect the cops! No one forgets their pin or fails to remember the instructions for setting and recovering their 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. “

A Master Reset WILL NOT reset the PIN. Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:
1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was originally entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin.

Pin Number

In order to reset the PIN and location, you must first enter the correct PIN (or take the unit to where the PIN was set) and unlock the unit. Then press the button on the bottom of the screen that looks like a wrench. Press the "System" icon, then press the button to the right of "Garmin Lock." Your choices should be "Off," "On," "Change PIN" and "Change Security Location."
