Question about Garmin eTrex Summit GPS Receiver
I down loaded the americas recreational basemap 4.0 and when I turn on my gps it saya can't unlock map hit enter
Buy your map updates from Garmin, and Garmin alone.... then you can call on their excellent full customer support. They even supply you with an unlock code when you purchase maps direct from them as part of the deal. (these numbers will be recorded with Garmin, so contact them if you lost yours).
If you download maps from 'shady' sites, you get shady programs too.
Some maps downloaded have been found containing trojans to send details of your linked bluetooth products (phone details, computer details)
Hope this helps.

When your unit says that it cannot unlock the maps, it's because these were not purchased from a Garmin dealer, they were probably downloaded from the internet. Garmin has a unlock procedure which they will help you with if your unit is registered with them.
For oldeman2002: if your son set the PIN number on the unit, and you can't return to the unit to the security location where the unit was set, send the GPS in to Garmin with proof of purchase and they will unlock it for you.
