There are only three ways to unlock the GPS.

1) Get the PIN from whoever you bought it from.
2) Take the GPS to the location it was at when the PIN was set.
3) Send the unit to Garmin to have it reset. For return information: CLICK HERE

If you can't get the PIN from whoever sold it to you online, it is probably a stolen unit. You should contact your local police dept with a the serial number to see if it turns up in their database. If it is stolen, you may be eligible for a refund from the online auction house because you were defrauded. At the very least you should file a complaint with the auction house to prevent this sub-human from screwing other people the way he screwed you.

The Garmin C550 does not come with a PIN number set. It comes "unlocked" and you have the option of setting a PIN number, if you choose to. There is no paperwork that came with the unit telling you the PIN number. If you purchased this unit used, you can ask the previous owner if they remember the PIN. Otherwise, your options are to bring the unit back to the location at which the PIN was entered where it will automatically unlock, or send the unit back to Garmin.

GARMIN C550


Hi Don,

 

You probably just need to find the reciept where you bought the C550.  Sounds like Garmin is protecting its customers when they say $300.  This is most unfortunate thing to happen to you.  Is the Garmin $300 issue as I thought and related to you not having the registration code or Reciept?

GPS C550 ASKING FOR pin after 4 months used


Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was originally entered.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If it IS stolen (if you bought it off craigslist.com, how do you know for sure it isn't?) it will be returned to the original owner and you will be out the money you spent. There is NO workaround this SECURITY feature.

Pin number


According to the c550 owners manual, the only way to bypass the PIN request is to drive to the security location where the PIN was set. When you are at that location the GPS will NOT ask for a PIN. Since you bought the GPS at a pawn shop, you probably don't know the security location either.

In that case, according to the owners manual, you'll have to send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked. Go to www.garmin.com

I know you won't like my solution but its the only solution available.

Good luck,
- Jim

Your first problem was purchasing the unit the way you did. If you purchased it legitimately, you would not have this issue. Your only solutions are to enter the correct PIN number, take the unit to where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin.
