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. If it IS stolen (if you bought it off craigslist.com, how do you know for sure it isn't?) it will be returned to the original owner and you will be out the money you spent. There is NO workaround this SECURITY feature.

The PIN no longer works and I need to reset it. Was purchased off Craigs list a few months ago and I do not know the persons name I purchased it from to go to the secure location to make it work again


As I said, my son-in-law bought the Garmin c550 off Craigs list. I do not want to pay for an answer so I will give it back to my son-in-law and tell him I could not figure out why the PIN doesn't work any longer. Thanks for asking, Brandy

GARMIN C550


Hi Don,

 

You probably just need to find the reciept where you bought the C550.  Sounds like Garmin is protecting its customers when they say $300.  This is most unfortunate thing to happen to you.  Is the Garmin $300 issue as I thought and related to you not having the registration code or Reciept?

Pin number


According to the c550 owners manual, the only way to bypass the PIN request is to drive to the security location where the PIN was set. When you are at that location the GPS will NOT ask for a PIN. Since you bought the GPS at a pawn shop, you probably don't know the security location either.

In that case, according to the owners manual, you'll have to send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked. Go to www.garmin.com

I know you won't like my solution but its the only solution available.

Good luck,
- Jim

Lock


When you turn it on it should ask for a 4 digit PIN.  If you don't remember the PIN move the GPS to the same location where the PIN was originally set.
