Assuming the GPS is yours and you were the one who programmed it, here is your answer:
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 have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device. (Approximately 150 feet from that location)

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note Garmin will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

You can unlock it at the same place you set the lock code.
If you cant do that you will have to send it back to garmin to unlock it.
You will also need a proof of purchase.

You must go to with-in 50 meters of your SECURITY LOCATION for your unit to automatically unlock then you can reset your password....

Only other way is to send it back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.... All Garmin units are Registered with Garmin with the owner for security reasons ( THIEF)

I forgot my password how can i unlock it


When you went through the password process you also had to set up your secret place in case you forgot your password. Go to your secret place and your Garmin will unlock and you can reset your password.
Hope this helps

Hello


You'll have to courier it to Texas to have it unlocked, or else send it in to Garmin to have them reset it. You'll also need to send the original receipt with the unit.
