For the last resort try performing a hard reset. For most Garmins this can be found behind the serial number label. Gently get a finger nail or something thin under the label to raise it up. Pull it back and you will find a small flexible tab. Push the tab in and hold for 30 seconds or 1 minute. It may require more than one try. A hard reset may wipe out any saved directions but it will get it and running.

Garmin nuvi 250 freezeing up


Yes you can get it fixed by sending it back to Garmin. www.garmin.com It is probably the firmware glitching. To be honest it will cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.

How do you reset ur password on a garmin nuvi 200w? i just bought a used garmin nuvi 200w but i dont know the pin for it. so how do i change the pin if i dont know the original pin?


The only way you can register that gps is have the original owner call Garmin and have them release it from his account, otherwise you could not use it or get it registered..... all Garmin GPS are registered to unlock maps....and all have a SECURITY FEATURE in them in case of lost or stolen.

I lock my phone and forget my password for my garmin nuvi


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.

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???

Did you find a way to unlock the garmin?


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.
