I forgot my password for my garmin nuvi 255w how can i reset it? please help

If you forgot your PIN, take the unit to your Security Location (where you first set the PIN). The unit will unlock and you can reset it.

Did you set a "home" point? If you did, drive to that point, and it should unlock. You can then change your password to something you remember. :-) If not, you can send it to Garmin, along with proof of purchase, and they will unlock it for you.

If you forgot your password, Garmin lock has an option to unlock it by going to the location the password was set. This is called security location, usually your home or the drive way.

How to reset password ,forgot it

You need some type sharp (but not as sharp as a pin...don't use that) object to trigger the switch. I have used the ball tip of a ball point pen to do the reset. You will receive no on-screen message that the unit has been reset so don't look for one.

One way to tell if you have triggered the reset switch would be to have the unit turned on when you do it. The unit will then reboot indicating that you have triggered the switch and reset the unit.

I forgot my password how can i unlock it

When you went through the password process you also had to set up your secret place in case you forgot your password. Go to your secret place and your Garmin will unlock and you can reset your password.
Hope this helps

Forgot password for my garmin nuvi 265w can you tell me how.

Did you select a secret geographic location? Usually the exact spot you chose the password at. If you return the unit to this location (i.e. it's in my driveway) It will unlock it and allow you to change or cancel current password

The nuvi 270 is the model that comes with pre-loaded maps of europe. The nuvi 250 only has North America. You can find the right maps on Garmin at:

You can purchase all of europe or select areas which are $50 dollars cheaper.
