Brand new the unit does NOT have a PIN. Therefore, there is no where to "locate" it. You need to ask whomever you purchased the unit from what the PIN is. Failing that, ask them the location at which the PIN was set. This is the security location, and going there will unlock the unit. The only other option you have is to send the unit back to Garmin. Be aware, however, if you cannot prove to them that you purchased the unit, they WILL NOT return it to you.

Unlock gps 760 garmin ilost the 4 pin number


The only way to do it is to go to the location you set as "home" in the GPS. When you are at that location, the GPS will not ask you for a PIN and you can then go in and change the PIN.

If you don't know what the home location is, you'll need to contact Garmin http://www.garmin.com

There are so many of these being stolen from vehicles, the PIN is designed to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!

I was givin a streetpilot 510c by my grand prents that they had brought in western Aust as they have forgotin the pin number and were in W.A. when they first set it up since i live in victoria a 6 hour...


Unfortunately, you don't have any quick and easy options, the security wouldn't be much use if it were otherwise. Garmin Lock has been activated and can only be disabled by either entering the correct PIN or by turning the unit on at its "security location". This will be the place where the PIN was originally set. Garmin will not assist you as you are not the original purchaser.

Your only fix is to contact your grandparents to ask if they remember where they set up the PIN number. As the unit strongly advises that the security location is not the owner's home address this may not be straightforward. If they can remember, then post the unit back to them so that they can take it to the security location and disable Garmin Lock. If this is not possible, then your grandparents should contact Garmin who will assist them if they have proof of purchase or have previously registered the unit with Garmin.

Asking for a pin number


What you will need to do is either send it to garmin and pay them.

or go to the security location ( this is the place where the pin was first input)

other than that you can try to remember the pin

good luck

You should ask the person from whom you purchased the unit the PIN or the Security Location (the location at which the PIN was entered). Your only other option for unlocking the unit would be to send it back to Garmin, but they will likely not unlock it and/or not return it to you without proof of purchase.

Was given unit but need to reset pin how


I assume the unit is locked now. If it is and it was given to you by the original owner, ask them what the PIN is or where they set it (the security location) to unlock it. Once it is unlocked, you will be able to change the PIN.

If it was not given to you by the individual who set the PIN, you will be unable to unlock the unit unless you happen to know the security location. Garmin will not unlock a unit for you that you did not purchase.

Brand new, the unit does NOT have a PIN. You need to contact the seller and ask them the PIN. Your only other options to unlock the unit are to take it to the location at which the PIN was entered or send the unit back to Garmin. Garmin will require proof of purchase before they will unlock and return the unit to you.

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 260 on ebay and it is locked. How do I unlock it. It does nothing but ask for the pin?


I would do one of two things: ask the seller for the PIN or return it and get your money back. You cannot get past the PIN number without entering the correct PIN, taking the unit back to the location at which the PIN was entered or returning the unit to Garmin. However, Garmin requires proof of purchase in order to send the unit back to you.

My garmin nuvi 780 is asking for a pin code it was working fine yesterday any ideas


You must have installed a PIN code when you first set it up. If you can't remember, then take it back to the security location and it will automatically unlock, and you can reset the PIN. If you purchased this privately rather than from a dealer, there is a chance it is stolen. The PIN is the security feature of Garmin GPSes.

Where do I find my PIN number ???????


PIN number stands for Personal Identification Number

Most Credit Cards have PIN number.

If you are being asked for a PIN number by a program running on your computer
you can consider that program to be dubious or hacked.

Most software vendors employ a PRODUCT KEY , not a PIN number

PIN numbers are for financial transactions.

If you are being asked your PIN number by a program other than your BANK
or a site that you are purchasing software from , then you are most likely being
tricked by an evil hacker and should not proceed to give them any PIN number.

If this is your credit card or bank card or debet card you are talking about.

Your pin number will be located on the back of the card , the last 3 digits.
