Return to your secure location and the unit will unlock. Otherwise, send back to Garmin with your original purchase receipt and they will unlock it.

Master pin reset


There is no master PIN reset. It is meant to be a theft deterrent. If there was a master PIN reset, the thieves would have no trouble resetting the PIN and the PIN would be useless. More info about PINs can be found here:

Forgot security for garmin 1350


Hello,

If this is the security PIN number, 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.

I forgot my password for my garmin nuvi 255w how can i reset it? please help


If you forgot your PIN, take the unit to your Security Location (where you first set the PIN). The unit will unlock and you can reset it.

Forgot pin code


Performing a reset will NOT reset the PIN. There are only three ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. This is the Security Location.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If you are unable to provide proof of purchase to Garmin, however, they will NOT return the unit to you.

I forgot my pin. how can i reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin2_bing.gif:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

Forgot my pin can unlock


All you need to do is go to the location where you entered the PIN. Go to that location and power up the unit. It won't ask you for the PIN when you are at the location that it was entered. If you don't know the location, you will need to send the unit back to Garmon to be reset. These are features to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!
