Re: navigational SYSTEM

I need to pair my btsgp 3 to my phone it asks for a passcode

Re: navigational SYSTEM


First we need to know the model number of the Garmin GPS device. There's probably a way to reset the device, but it will be specific to a particular (line of) models. Nuvi 250? GPSMap 276C?

I have a GPS that i bought from a garage sale and it has a passcode on it and i would want to know how to find the pass code please thank you

Sorry, but you don't. Garmin Lock is a very secure anti-theft system which makes the unit useless if stolen. Unfortunately it's equally good at making it useless if it's legitimately sold without Garmin Lock disabled or without the password being supplied to the new owner.

Click here to read my FixYa Tip for more details, but in short, unless the seller can tell you either the password or the Security Location then the unit is utterly useless to you.

Garmin lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your Nuvi. each time you turn on the Nuvi, enter the pin or drive to the security location to unlock.

Touch tools>settings>security
touch the button below Garmin lock
Enter a 4 digit pin and drive to security location

Note if you forget your PIN and your security location, you must send your Nuvi to Garmin to unlock it. You must also send a valid product registration or proof of purchase.

How can I unlock a passcoded Nuvi 265WT?

This GPS doesn't come pass code protected, that code is put in by the owner, so i must assume this is not your property.

Touch screen locked unable to unlock it.

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.

I forgot my passcode for my garmin nuvi 300 how can i reset it

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.

The detailed maps are "locked" all of a sudden!

If this is still happening then go to Kenwood direct, they supplied the unit with the pre loaded software and therefore they should deal with the problem as they are not supposed to lock the software. Kenwood if need be will contact Garmin for you. You may find that they have experienced this problem with other users too.

My garmin nuvi 660 na is locked and i cant unlock it

There should be a small pinhole for a reset button. Press and hold this reset button for 60 seconds. Then turn the device back on.
