Take it back to the security location, or else send in to Garmin and they'll fix the problem. ;)

MY GARMIN ASK FOR A PIN I DONT KNOW THE PIN IS THERE A FACTORY ONE


Someone entered a PIN, and you'll have re-enter it to use the GPS again. The only people that can unlock it is the person that entered the PIN and Garmin. You'll have to contact one or the other. Be prepared to provide "proof of purchase" when talking to Garmin - as they won't unlock it "just because".

You can contact Garmin Technical Support directly, here.

I cannot unlock garmin nuvi 205


Ask the person from whom you purchased this unit (it does NOT come locked from the factory) what the PIN is. If he/she will not provide the code, ask for a refund. You will NOT be able to use this unit without the correct PIN.

Hello i have a garmin c550 gps and for some reason it blocked on me i forgot my pin nunber i guess... i dont know how to reset it and i dont have my manual with me....


The manual would not help you. Resetting the unit (even a Master Reset) will NOT remove or reset the PIN. Your options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set.
3 - Return the unit to Garmin.

Garmin nuvi 300 asking for pin number


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.
