Yup, send it to Garmin. Or go to the spot where it unlocks. It is a theft protection, so only send it to garmin with proof of purchase to prove you are the owner!

    I forget my pasword


    If it is Garmin you will have to send it back to them. Garmin has a way to clear the pin code but they are not releasing it to the public. So i think you will have to have your cheque book ready for this one.

    I forgot my pin and I need to unlock it


    You have to go to the orig location you programmed your number. It uses the coordinates of that location in memory as a "Home" See below.
    The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location.
    To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
    1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
    2. Touch Settings.
    3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
    4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
    5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
    6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
    7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
    8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
    9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
    The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.

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.
