We have a Garwin Nuvi GPS that keeps asking for a pin number to unlock the system. We have not entered a pin number. How can we unlock it without the pin number?

The only way to do it is to go to the location you set as "home" in the GPS. When you are at that location, the GPS will not ask you for a PIN and you can then go in and change the PIN.

If you don't know what the home location is, you'll need to contact Garmin http://www.garmin.com

There are so many of these being stolen from vehicles, the PIN is designed to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!

Garmin nui 350 Tried everything. My brother-in-law past away recently and dont no his pin # . is it possiable to reset and use garwin ?


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.

My garwin 1300 keeps going to another state, I have done the reset of turning it off and holding the right lower corner and then resetting, I have driven the car out to a parking lot and kept it plugged in...


Try to find your own home address (which you'll want to label as "Home").

From the main screen, select Where to>Address.
Change the State, if necessary. This will make your state the default for future searches.
Touch "Spell City" and enter your city name or zip code.
Enter your house number, and touch Done.
Enter the street name, and touch Done.
Select the correct street on the list, if necessary.
Select it. You'll have the opportunity to Save your address as "Home".

Good luck.

    I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 260 on ebay and it is locked. How do I unlock it. It does nothing but ask for the pin?


    I would do one of two things: ask the seller for the PIN or return it and get your money back. You cannot get past the PIN number without entering the correct PIN, taking the unit back to the location at which the PIN was entered or returning the unit to Garmin. However, Garmin requires proof of purchase in order to send the unit back to you.

    How i can unlock my gps garmin nuvi 205 w


    Enter your PIN number, or take the unit back to the "Security Location" and it will unlock by itself. You can then enter a new PIN unlock code.

    The touch screen on our Garwin Nuvi 360 do not function.


    Unfortunatly there is a fine wire Grid below the surface of the glass, the grid detects where you are touching on the screen, with the glass being broken, the grid is broken, which will cause dead spots or regions on the touch screen. You will have to replace the Touch screen or the unit which ever is most cost effective.

    Hope this is of some help.
