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.

How to unlock a garmin nuvi 680 , im looking for a garmin gps and i found one on ebay for a good price but its locked, so i need to know how easy or hard it is to unlock it. Thanks


The only way to get this unlocked is to send it back to garmin with proof of purchase. Reason is that these items are commonly stolen and Garmin does not want to support criminal activity.

I bought a garmin nuvi 680 in a yard sale,functional is ok,but need pin can you help


Nope, the PIN is set by the original user and can't be broken. Even Garmin won't reset it without an original receipt from a Garmin dealer. If you weren't given the PIN when you bought it second hand, it was probably stolen.

Can't unlock my garmin nuvi 680


There is NO master reset code. Whoever told you this was wrong. You have to use your security location to unlock it. Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer. This is to prevent use of the unit in case of theft.

Child put in random code and locked nuvi 260 gps


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you can remember the PIN Code previously set on your device you will be able to change the Pin on your device easily. You can change the PIN on the unit by doing the following:
All Nuvi's excluding 3xx and 6xx
  1. Turn your device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Security
  5. Touch On/Off under Garmin Lock
Within this section you can add or change a PIN.

When the Garmin security lock is set it locates the units current GPS location.
If you are trying to change the Garmin Lock and are not within the same location to where the Garmin Lock was set you will need to revert back to this GPS position.

Once at this position you will not be prompted to enter the PIN Code when starting the device up and can change the code as you please

My son accidentaly put a lock code on my garmin nuvi 680 is there any way to get into it again


Where did he do it at? All you have to do is go to that location and when you turn it on it won't ask for the pin. Other wise, you need to send it back to Garmin.

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.
