SOURCE: forgot password on my garmin 255W

Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi205_OwnersManual.pdf

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.

SOURCE: i forgot the password on my garmin nuvi 205, how

You can try a master reset

With unit off, press and hold the bottom right hand corner of the screen, keep holding this and turn the unit on, hold it for 10 more seconds and the unit should say do you really want to wipe all user data.

Best of it

In order to minimize the theft of GPS's, a common problem, Garmin will only reset your GPS if you prove to them that you are who you say you are and you have proof of purchase. That said, go to Garmin.com to contact them. J.

Forgot password for 1350


Hello,

To get your password back. You have to get your nuvi connected to a computer and format it or flash it so it resets everything on it, the you have to set new password and you also have to reinstall your maps back on it.

That is the best solution i can give for getting a new password for your garmin nuvi.

Take care and good luck

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.

Forgot my password, need a reset code


To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.

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
