Re: why does phone lock up?

Try connecting from the GPS menu. You may have to set the phone to be able to be found temporarily. Go to the unit's Bluetooth menu, make sure it is Enabled and click Add. It should look for your phone, and if it finds it, the phone should ask you to enter the unit's code. See if this works.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me

Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the bezel.

Gently pull off the faceplate.

Press the reset button.

If it still asks for a code and you don't have it, it should ask you to drive to a secret location to unlock the device. If you don't know the location, the only other option you have is to send the unit to Garmin to be unlocked. You can also try to call Garmin with the serial number and see if they can do something less annoying to unlock it.

Unlock c510

Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

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.

The unit does only allow you ONE attempt at the PIN before it locks you out. However, you should be able to turn the unit off for a minute or two and turn it back on to try again. I have a Street Pilot C550 and it does the same exact thing.
