There is no "fix" for this. It is a security feature that cannot be worked around. You either have to enter the correct PIN number, take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered, or send the unit back to Garmin.

Cant remeber pin number


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.

Forgot password cant get it unlocked need to do a master reset


if you forgot your pin number you must return to the SECURITY LOCATION...... the security location is where you first set up your gps....( your home or office ) then the unit will automatically unlock for you, remember to reset your pin number when unlocked..

Other than that you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.

I FORGET MY PIN # FOR THE GARMIN NUVI 660 HOW DO I OPEN THE LOCK


To unlock your unit you must go with-in 50 meters of your SECURITY LOCATION , that is the place you first setup your GPS, it could of been your home or office.

Once there the unit will automatically unlock, reset your pin number at that time in the Security menu.

If you cant get to the Security location you must send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipts of ownership.

I bought a used garmin nuvi and it is pin locked and i cant find the person i got it from? how do i reset or get pin?


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.

I got a used garmin streetpilot c550 it never needed a pin#


Have you tried a hard reset? This is described in the manual. You have to remove the bezel to do this. It is like a restore function on a PC
