Garmin is the only source for unlocking a previously locked GPS when the security unlock code is forgotten. This security code is optionally created by the owner, it is not in any manual. Unfortunately, if you're unable to demonstrate proof of ownership to the CSR at Garmin in such a way that is satisfactory to them, return on the GPS is the only remedy.

This is Garmin's theft deterrent system at work. Too many times, people looking for this information have simply come into possession of a device that does not belong to them. If you are the owner of the GPS, you should be able to recall the security code you created and be glad that your interests are being rigorously defended. On the other hand, if you have stolen the device.. well, I can't say what I really think here.

I have found a 765 garmin and i dont know the pin number or the owner. It came out of a used car i worked on at work. Can i get it reset?

Nope you cant reset the unit.....

All Garmins are registered with Garmin for the reason of if ever lost the unit would have to be unlocked by the rightful owner... the Serial number is located on the bottom of unit in the middle

Beware if the unit was ever turned on remember its a GPS they can find you quicker than you finding them

Be that nice guy and give Garmin a call and they can tell by the serial number who the owner is....

Thanks for being Honest
Its an expensive unit with good security

New garmin - got latest updates from garmin loaded it then it says maps not unlocked?

Garmin only allows you one free update for your GPS as long as you download and install it within 60 days after you purchase your unit. If you have tried to download any updates after your 1 free update without paying the update fee you would get the error you have mentioned. If this is your first update, or you have paid for it, and you are getting the error, the map has become corrupted. You'll have to contact Garmin's support and they will have to supply you with a code to use to unlock the map.

Garmin 765T not powering up at all

Hello there
I would first consult the troubleshooting section in your manual
next unplug the unit and hold in the reset button for 2 min this may help reset the device.
unplug the device from all power sorces and leave it set for several hours these units have a relearning feature.
finally if this does not work go to the manufacture web site of the device and consult the on line techinal support
i really hope that this will help you get your device going again,

HOW CAN YOU UNLOCK A CODE LOCKED UNIT if you dont have the code?

No, unfortunately. You either need to drive to the secure place to unlock it, or contact Garmin to have it unlocked. Once unlocked, I would recommend turning Garmin Lock OFF.

Help.. lost my pin code

The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
