What you have to do when you forget your PIN code is to drive to the secure location that you chose when you initially set the PIN and it will unlock itself. I'm not sure how one can change a PIN accidentally without selecting a secure location. If you forget the PIN and the secure location you have no other choice but to return the unit to Garmin to be unlocked.

I fogot my Garmin nuvi 310 pin code. So please help me to unlock that.


Hello,

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.

How do i unlock my garmin nuvi 310 deluxe


If you have a PIN number on your device you will have been asked to set a security location. When you are at your security location or within approximately 50 metres of your security location the device will unlock without the PIN number.

My daughter changed my password on my nuvi 205w and says she wont give it to me untill i take her m0m back... i use my gps all the time for work can u help me out


I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it (apart from taking your daughter's mom back!).

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.

Hi. I forgot the pin code for my nuvi310. can you help me please?


Garmin Pin codes are accessed ( when forgotten) By taking it back to the coordinates that it was first set. You would know where you were when you set the pin code. So just mosey on back there and once in place access your unit and reset the code.

There is no master code, that process IS the master code access

For got my pin code for my garmin 310 . how doi


Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.

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???
