You can't. You have to send it to Garmin with original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will unlock it. This security feature cannot be bypassed and there is no master unlock PIN.

Forgotten Garmin 200 password


I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

My grand daughter locked up my garmin nuvi 200. She does not know the pin number she input. Now I can not use it. Can you help?


You can take it to the location where your granddaughter locked it, and it will unlock by itself (this is called the security location). It will then unlock, and you can reset the PIN.

Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt and they will unlock it for you. There is no master password.

I purchased a Garmin 200 GPS off ebay, it is locked, I tried registering it on the Garmin website to get the unlock codes but was told the serial number I entered was already registered. I there any other...


Looks like the person who sold you the GPS has already used the unlock code so you should go back to the seller and ask for a refund as it is not possible to get round the unlock code.
