Question about GPS
Remove the faceplate around your stereo. You can do this by slipping a flat object under the edge and prying up. We used a knife, but a flat head screwdriver works just as well. There will be clips holding it in place, so feel for them. You may need to move your faceplate up or down to slide out of position. Step 2
Find and remove any screws holding the stereo in place. Step 3
Slide out far enough to see the label on top of the stereo. You will need both of the numbers circled. Write them down. Step 4
Locate your VIN number at the base of the front window, driver side. If you can't read your VIN off the window, you will have it on your proof of insurance and title as well. Write it down. Step 5 Locate your manufacture's toll free Customer Service number and call them. I called Mitsubishi at 1-888-MITSU2009 to get my code and they were very helpful and easy to work with. Some other manufacture's 800 numbers include:
Acura 1-800-382-2238, Audi 1-800-367-2837, BMW 1-800-831-1117, GMC 1-800-462-8782, Honda 1-800-999-1009, Isuzu 1-800-255-6727, Mazda 1-800-222-5500, Nissan 1-800-647-7263, Saab 1-800-582-7222, Saturn 1-800-553-6000, Toyota 1-800-311-4331, Volvo 1-800-458-1552.
If your manufacture was not in the preceding list, check http://autopedia.com/html/Mfg800.html for a more extensive list Step 6 Let them know you need your stereo code and have the vehicles VIN number as well as the numbers off the stereo. They will provide you with a code. If you are unsure how to input the code; be sure to ask for support at this time.

First check your service documentation for a card that is the size of a credit card. Most manufacturers use this to leave a record of the radio code in your service wallet. Also you should thumb through the user guide of your stereo as it may be marked in there somewhere also.
If you do not find any record of this in your service documentation you will need to contact your nearest main dealer because this security code is unique and is individual to your exact radio and vehicle.
You will need to give them
1) The serial number of the radio (you will have to remove the radio from the dash to find this on a sticker on the case).
2) The VIN (vehicle identification number) of your vehicle which will be recorded on the registration document.
3) The dealer may also ask for proof that you own the radio or vehicle.
It is worth noting that some dealers charge for this service and others will not charge if you have already obtained all this information by yourself so it is worth phoning around. Also some are not too stringent about proof of ownership and will give you the code over the phone!
You need to ring around to find out which dealer is going to be the most helpful in this respect.
