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.

Lost pin number


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.

My Garmin gps is frozen on a screen telling me there are no maps found. I tried to reset it and put a memory card in it but nothing worked so far. Any ideas?


You're missing the file gmapprom.img on your C510 unit (possibly a failed update?).

Unless you have a backup it's contact Garmin I expect (maybe try getting a copy off someone but possible the file is locked to the unit as I have tried swapping SD cards containing maps in the past between units and no joy)..

Help with my GPS garmin nuvi 260


You have a problem my friend. Either remember your pin or

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi 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.

Garmin 660 locked up / frozen


Resetting the device merely resets the power connection, on some devices there is a reset to manufacturer defaults on settings, but not your stored data. Working with GPS's 40 hours a week I constantly have to use the reset button when they lock up. Just press it in for a few seconds then if it doesn't power back up just hit the power button and everything should be fine.

Frozen screen


Resetting Your c330
If your unit locks up, press the Power button to turn off the unit, then press again to turn the unit back on. If this does not help, reset your C330.
1. Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate.
2. Gently pull off the face plate.
3. Press the Reset button.
4. Turn the unit back on; it will operate normally

Garmin is frozen on, and will not respond.


Have you tried resetting the unit? Remove the faceplate and press the reset button on the right side of the unit. This may help.
