  • JReno Mar 09, 2008

    i got my Garmin 200 as a present and I forgot my Pin code, also I can't figure out what is the security location. I have tried to get information to unlock it, but the only information that I have is that I have to send it back to Garmin with a receipt that i purchase it. It was a GIFT!, how to unlock it?

    Also I tried to get as many combinations possible but, it is getting a little anoying after number 1500, and I had suppose 8500 left to try!!!!, HELP!!

If you're good with the soldering/heat gun you can purchase a broken unit online and just swap all the IC's...

For your information, the only solution because of design, is the answer you do not want to hear!

It is in the design of the GPS, that if you forget the pin number, it must be brought back to the reference home position where the pin was entered in order to unlock it. The alternative solution is to send the unit back to Garmin with a copy of the proof of purchase.

After 10 wrong pin attempts, the unit is permanently locked, and no matter what, Garmin will have to unlock it.


Good Luck!

Surely, you can remember where you were when you set the pin code, just return there and it will unlock itself.
Garmin use this to deter thieves from unlocking stolen units.

My pin doesnt work and I dont know how to reset my garmin nuvi 205


If your pin does not work, you need to go to your security location (location of when you set the pin the very first time) to unlock it. If you don't remember that you need to call garmin at 1-800-800-1020 to set up an rma to send the unit in to have it unlocked.

Garmin unlock


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.

Lost pin


The Garmin Lock feature also learnt a place called 'Security Location' when you locked it. Go there and turn the receiver on. It should automagically work.

If you forget your PIN, and your Security Location, Garmin cannot unlock your GPS over the phone; you must send your GPS to Garmin to get it unlocked. Garmin may charge you for this service. If you do send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked and you are found not to be the original owner of the GPS and it's determined to be stolen, Garmin will contact law enforcement.

Unlock pin number


If you don't remember your lock code. you need to take the unit to your secure spot, this should be where ever you set up the machine. once in the security area, turn the machine on, at that point you can change the code. If you don't remember either, then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

My kids locked my garmin nuvi 260w all my screen says is enter pin in i dont know 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.

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???
