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.

With the unit turned OFF, press "OK", "PAGE" and "ON" simultaneously. This will do a hard reset on the unit.

I do not remember the location of wich i enterd my pin code

If you do not remember your PIN code, and do not remember the security location, you will have to send it back to Garmin with an original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will unlock it for a fee. This is a security feature on the Garmin units to prevent them from being used if they are stolen.

Garmin unlock

If you can't remember your password, take it back to your security location and it will unlock itself. You can then change the password to something you'll remember.

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.

Do not remember my pin number can you help me please

well, try removing the battery and leaving it out for a bit. if that doesn't work, start systematically going through all of the possible combinations of numbers. it will take you a long time to do this. i know, it sucks. my friend did this to his cellphone. i think it took him more than two weeks to find the code.

Unlock pin number

If you don't remember your lock code. you need to take the unit to your secure spot, this should be where ever you set up the machine. once in the security area, turn the machine on, at that point you can change the code. If you don't remember either, then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.
