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.

Unlock garmin 1390t gps forgot 4 diget pin


    • 1 Enter your four-digit personal identification number that you used to lock your Garmin GPS. When your Garmin GPS is locked, you need to enter the four-digit PIN every time you turn the device on.
    • 2 Drive to the security location that you set when you locked your Garmin GPS. Turn your Garmin GPS on and pull the GPS antenna up so that your GPS is able to acquire the satellite. Once your GPS recognizes that you are at your security location, it will unlock itself.
    • 3 Contact Garmin if you forgot your PIN and security location. You will need to send your GPS to Garmin to have it unlocked. You will also need to send a valid product registration or proof of purchase for Garmin to unlock your GPS. Call Garmin at (800) 800-1020 and get the shipping address and specific instructions from an authorized Garmin representative.

How do iunlock the security pin when if forgot my pin no.


If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series device and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. 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.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location, just contact Product Support for assistance. Please note, you will need a copy of your receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by warranty.

Forgot password cant get it unlocked need to do a master reset


if you forgot your pin number you must return to the SECURITY LOCATION...... the security location is where you first set up your gps....( your home or office ) then the unit will automatically unlock for you, remember to reset your pin number when unlocked..

Other than that you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.

What is the pin code as ive forgot. its the code you have when you buy it with thanks jean. and how would i be able to change the code


The SECURITY LOCATION is where you first set up your GPS, it could of been where you live or work at.

If you go with-in 50 meters of the security location the GPS will autmatically unlock..... once unlocked you can re-new your pin number.

If you dont know where your security location or pin number is you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.

Hi, the pin was changed but didnt used it for a while but forgot the pin?


Take the unit back to the location at which you changed the PIN. This is the Security Location. The unit will unlock, and you can change the PIN again.

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.

I need to know how to reset password to my garmin nuvi where2


The secure location is your "back-up key" in case you forget your PIN. If you have forget your pin, all you have to do is physically go to the secure location. Make sure your antenna is up and that you have a satellite lock. When you are in the secure location, your GPS will NOT ask you for the PIN when you turn it on. You'll then be able to reach the main menu and change the PIN and secure location to something else if you desire.

If you have forgot both the PIN and secure location you are out of luck. You'll have to send your unit back to Garmin to have it unlocked. Garmin may charge you for this service.
