The only way to unlock a PIN locked unit is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Other than that, your only other option is to send the unit back to Garmin.

SOURCE: unable to see maps it

The pin that it is asking for is a security pin that can not be reset. It is to prevent a stolen GPS from being used. If the person you purchased it from can not get you the pin then you must contact Garmin and they will have the information on file if the unit was registered. You most likely will have to send the unit back to Garmin to be reset. I have attached the link to Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa

My dauther was playing with my garmin nuvi 2360 now its asking for a pin? I never set one up and I dont see any default codes in my paperwork or manuel?


When you first used your GPS, it asked you for a safety location. Take the unit back to this safety location and it will unlock, you can then reset the PIN code. If not, send it back to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and, for a service charge, they will reset the PIN code.

I'dont know wich es the secret number (PIN) can you help me ?? is One GARMIN NUVI 205 ... THANKS


The PIN is set by the owner of the unit. The place at which the PIN is first entered is the Security Location. If you do not have the PIN, you must go to the Security Location for the unit to unlock. You can then change the PIN or remove it. Your only other option for unlocking the unit would be to return it to Garmin with proof of purchase.

How can I unlock a passcoded Nuvi 265WT?


This GPS doesn't come pass code protected, that code is put in by the owner, so i must assume this is not your property.

To connect gps to computer wich pins do i connect of nmea cable?


pins 2(-) and 5(+) on a 9 pin serial cable, then you need a usb to serial adapter for input into the computer if you do not have a built in 9 pin serial port on you computer because the usb moves the information faster than the gps signal. gps is roughly 4800 baud, usb is moving so much faster you need a buffer
