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.

Im locked out i have lost my pin code for my garmin nuvi gps


Hello,

Going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

Locked out of my nuvi 255w askin for a 4 digit num code bought it from a friend of a friend help plz


This problem cannot be solved. You will need to send it to Garmin with an original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer in order to have Garmin reset the password. Otherwise, you will need the friend of a friend to give you the PIN to unlock it. This is a security feature on the Garmins and cannot be bypassed.

My garmin nuvi 650 is locked, the touch screen will not do anything, I have a 5yr extended warranty w/Repairtech and they are out of business


Please explain "locked"..... do you mean locked with a PIN code or locked in that it wont accept any inputs from your finger?

If the second, I can help you with that issue. Please see this link:

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.

Not recognizing the code.


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.

How do I unlock a Garmin c550? i bought garmin device at black market. after 1 month, it's automacally locked, ask me typing pin code. i'm trying so many times and unlocked. after that it was locked...


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.

PIN CODE


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.
