Unlock garmin 1390t gps forgot 4 diget pin


    • 1 Enter your four-digit personal identification number that you used to lock your Garmin GPS. When your Garmin GPS is locked, you need to enter the four-digit PIN every time you turn the device on.
    • 2 Drive to the security location that you set when you locked your Garmin GPS. Turn your Garmin GPS on and pull the GPS antenna up so that your GPS is able to acquire the satellite. Once your GPS recognizes that you are at your security location, it will unlock itself.
    • 3 Contact Garmin if you forgot your PIN and security location. You will need to send your GPS to Garmin to have it unlocked. You will also need to send a valid product registration or proof of purchase for Garmin to unlock your GPS. Call Garmin at (800) 800-1020 and get the shipping address and specific instructions from an authorized Garmin representative.

I forgot my pin and I need to unlock it


You have to go to the orig location you programmed your number. It uses the coordinates of that location in memory as a "Home" See below.
The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location.
To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
  1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
  4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
  5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
  6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
  7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
  8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
  9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.

Cant enter pin or screen is frozen


Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

PIN CODE


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location where the PIN was set. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

Garmin lock


It is POSSIBLE to unlock this, if someone were to try every possible combination of PIN numbers. However, this is a time consuming process. Most of the time when a unit is stolen, it is sold for a quick profit. It will be a study in frustration to whomever purchases it, as they will be told the only way to unlock the unit is to enter the correct PIN or take it to the location at which the PIN was set. The only other option will be to return the unit to Garmin. IF they do this, IF you have registered it, and IF you have notified Garmin of the theft, you MAY get it back. I would think it would be just a useless device to whomever winds up with it.

Garmin Nuvi 660 frozen screen


Don't know why it happens, but mine did the same thing. There's a reset button on the back, underneath where you lift up the antenna. Unplug the unit from the power source, push the reset button, reconnect to a power source and it should work fine; mine did. Good luck. Got this info from my Garmin owner's manual.

Garmin nuvi 660 forget my pin


The only options you have when it comes to a locked unit is to enter the correct PIN, go to the location where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin. There is no way to unlock a PIN locked unit without the correct PIN or location.
