Enter the unlock code from your dealer, or go to the safe location (known by the owner) to get the gps to unlock and then remove the code. Or send the unit to garmin to be unlocked.

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.

My kids were playing with my system(garmin nuvi 1350)and they were smart enough to lock it,but couldnot remember what they typed in,so now i'm locked out.Is there a factory code that can help me out?Thank...

you must return yo with-in 50 meters of the SECURITY LOCATION you first unlocked your gps...( most are at your home or office location )

once there your unit will unlock for you automatically, at this point reset your pin number or disable it ... to do that go to Tools.....Settings.....Security

other than that you would have to send it back to Garmin with the sales receipt .. All Garmin GPS are registered with garmin be4 they can download maps with the owners name and address

Its lock forgot code.... say call hotline but no answers bout the unlocking of my device it gives me a unlock code to have on hand when calling hotine but need helpp there please help gotta head to florida...

you must return to with-in 50 meters of the SECURITY LOCATION ( this is where you first set up the gps, most are home or work locations) it will automatically unlock for you.

once it unlocks, you can either reset pin number or disable it from locking....

only other choice is to send t back to Garmin with the proper sales receipt of ownership since all Garmins are registered with garmin and the owners name registered

I just bought a garmin nuvi 265 at a garage sale and its asking for a pin is therew a default pin or did i just wast my money

The previous owner must call Garmin and have it released from there name for you to re-register it, or give you the Pin Number.

If they forgot the pin number you must go to the SECURITY LOCATION of where they first set up the gps to automatically unlock for you then change the Pin number at the point.

Don't remember my pin

The only ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin are to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
