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 forgot pin


If you are talking about the security feature of locking the screen, simply return to the GPS coordinates of where you locked the unit and it should allow you to unlock it and reset the pin... That means if it is stolen or locked by someone else you are SOL. If you pay for it to be repaired by Garmin I think they can unlock it. No one else has figured out how.

Neither of us remember password for garmin 660 how do u reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS

Garmin 660 sat nav


I would take it back and demand a new one or replacement one. Some how someone must of you your serial number to register there, and now garmin seem to think that yours is stolen. Even though it is not. Garmin will lock the unit if a product gets, stolen and if someone else will try to update.

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???

No unlock code for Garmin Nuvi 660


Sorry but that is a security feature. There is a chance you've purchased a stolen unit from ebay. Unfortunately, only Garmin can unlock it and they will require a receipt from a Garmin dealer.

Owners can select a pin code to use which locks the unit preventing use by theives. Sat Nav theft is a big market. The unit needs to be sent to Garmin who will verify you are the registered owner and unlock it for you. If you bought at a market is there a good chance it may have been stolen?
