In order to minimize the theft of GPS's, a common problem, Garmin will only reset your GPS if you prove to them that you are who you say you are and you have proof of purchase. That said, go to Garmin.com to contact them. J.

I forgot my passcode for my gsrmin nuvi 250w cause i was over seas for a year


Unless you created a security location there is not way to reset the password other than having Garmin do it for you. When you set your password your GPS would have given you the chance to set a location. That way if you forgot your password you could drive to your location and be able to turn on and use your GPS without inputting the code. You could then go through the menu system and wipe out the need for a password. Now you'll have to send your GPS, along with your receipt, to Garmin, They will reset your password for you and send the unit back to you.

I FORGOT MY PASSWORD TO MY GPS GARMIN NUVI


Did you set a "home" point? If you did, drive to that point, and it should unlock. You can then change your password to something you remember. :-) If not, you can send it to Garmin, along with proof of purchase, and they will unlock it for you.

If you forgot your password, Garmin lock has an option to unlock it by going to the location the password was set. This is called security location, usually your home or the drive way.

Forgot my password, need a reset code


To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.

I forgot my password how can i unlock it


When you went through the password process you also had to set up your secret place in case you forgot your password. Go to your secret place and your Garmin will unlock and you can reset your password.
Hope this helps

Forgot password on my garmin 255W


Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi205_OwnersManual.pdf

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.
