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.

Reset password garmin 660


If you can't remember your password, take it back to your security location and it will unlock itself. You can then change the password to something you'll remember. If it won't unlock at the security location, send it to Garmin with the original receipt and they'll reset it.

Neither of us remember password for garmin 660 how do u reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS

I know my PIN number but can't remember my security location. My wife has the Garmin and it's stating "invalid pin" she accidentaly entered the address of the location instead of the pin. Now she getting...


Sometimes this happen to me when I fumble the PIN entry. I have to switch it off and then re-start and enter the PIN more carefully. When choosing a secret unlock location, choose somewhere other than your home - it can be nearby but noe AT home. This is case a thief finds where you live and takes the nuvi there as most people make Home the Unlock Location.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

My garmin nuvi 660 is asking me for a pin and i done have it. i need help


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.

Unlocking security code


The first thing you have to do is enter the correct PIN or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. It will now unlock. You can then press the icon that looks like a wrench, and look for an icon that says Garmin Lock (it is in different places on the different units, and I forgot exactly where it is on the 660, sorry.) You can then change the security code from there. If you are trying to unlock the unit without the PIN number, you will be unable to do so without taking the unit to the security location. In that case, your only option is to send the unit to Garmin.

You can't. Do you not remember your security location? As long as you take the unit back to this location, it will unlock. Otherwise, you'll have to send it in to Garmin with your original receipt to get it unlocked.
