You have Garmin lock activated and there are two ways to disable it. The first is to enter the PIN code, which you have forgotten, but the second method is to take the unit to the "security location" where you initially chose your PIN code. Garmin recommend that this is NOT your home or workplace as they are the places a thief is likely to take your unit to in order to try and bypass the PIN.

If you cannot recall either the PIN or the security location then the unit can only be unlocked for you by Garmin. The service is only available to the registered user and only if proof of purchase is also provided. If you didn't register your warranty or if you don't have proof of purchase then the unit is effectively scrap as it is unusable. Even if you do meet Garmin's requirements there is a charge for the service, and so unless your unit has up to date maps the investment is probably not cost-effective.

Hopefully you'll remember your security location and will regain use of your Garmin. If so, don't forget to reset the PIN code, and please take a moment to rate my answer.

I DO NOT REMEMBER MY PIN HOW DO I RESET IT


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. It is a anti-theft feature, you can't clear it.

I forget the unlock code


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin2_bing.gif:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS.

Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.

Hi, my daughter has messed about with my garmin nuvi 310 and has changed the pin code. How do i reset the code so can use it again regards Gaz......


What you have to do when you forget your PIN code is to drive to the secure location that you chose when you initially set the PIN and it will unlock itself. I'm not sure how one can change a PIN accidentally without selecting a secure location. If you forget the PIN and the secure location you have no other choice but to return the unit to Garmin to be unlocked.

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???

Unlock code for my garmin nuvi 350


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.
