The security location / pin # is so that someone cannot access the unit if it is stolen. When you first set up a pin # it tells you that the location you are at is your security location. Are you sure you want to do this now? and also informs you that if you forget your pin # you can return to the security location to unlock the unit. At that point you could easily reset the pin # or disable the security feature entirely. If the unit you have is stolen you are SOL you might as well send it back to garmin and if the origonal owner registered the unit like they were supposed to it will get back to them. Otherwise you did not pay enough attention to the instructions that were given to you at the time and you need to send it to garmin for unlocking. Good luck on that and I hope that they dont charge you for that service.

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 send the unit back to Garmin.

There is a guy on eBay that will unlock Garmin units for a few bucks. As far as I know he is the only one ableto do it. Search on eBay for "Garmin pin unlocking"

Try to look for the reset button. You can then put the pin in again without doing the secure location.

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.

Surely, you can remember where you were when you set the pin code, just return there and it will unlock itself.
Garmin use this to deter thieves from unlocking stolen units.

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.

Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin. Be aware, however, if you are not the owner of record, they will not return the GPS unit to you.
