Hello,

The Garmin security lock can only be unlocked or changed with the 4 digit pass code.
The pass code can only be reset by entering the original pass code or sending it to Garmin to be reset.

How do you reset ur password on a garmin nuvi 200w? i just bought a used garmin nuvi 200w but i dont know the pin for it. so how do i change the pin if i dont know the original pin?


The only way you can register that gps is have the original owner call Garmin and have them release it from his account, otherwise you could not use it or get it registered..... all Garmin GPS are registered to unlock maps....and all have a SECURITY FEATURE in them in case of lost or stolen.

How do I change the country on my Garmin nuvi 255W GPS?


What do you mean, "change the country"? The unit came with maps for the country in which it was originally sold. If you want to get maps for other countries, they are available for purchase at www.garmin.com or your local GPS retailer.

I bought a garmin nuvi 350 at a flea


Take it back and get your money back, as it is probably stolen. The PIN cannot be broken as it is set by the original user and cannot be reset by a third party. Even Garmin will not reset it without the original receipt from a Garmin dealer.

I found a Garmin nuvi 205w gps but I dont know what pin number to put in. what are some codes i can use?


You can't. Each PIN code has been entered manually by the original user and cannot be reset except by the owner. Contact Garmin, and if the unit was registered, they will be able to trace to the original owner.

Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."

So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

Garmin nuvi 200w screen keeps going off when select state


I would first connect the GPS to the computer and use the Webupdater program at Garmin.com to update all the software on the GPS. If that doesn't fix your problem you will need to contact Garmin. They have a program where they repair or replace GPS system for a flat fee. It seems to a very reasonalble price also.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
