SOURCE: Nuvi 260 won't turn on at all.
Had the same problem with my Garmin Nuvi 260w. It just needed to be reset. Lift up the sticker strip on the bottom of the unit and press the reset tab. Worked like a charm for me. HTH!

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 260 won't turn on
there are numerous things that will cause this not all of them are rational fixes for a GPS that is supposed to be reliable .
try some of these:
1) smack the GPS firmly in your hand then place back on charger, leave 15 mins whilst still connected turn it on holoding the button and counting to 25.
2) remove the battery and count to 25 and reinsert. turn GPS button to ON and hold for 15 seconds
3) Send it back to Garmin for warranty repair if its less than 12 months old
It is possible that you have spiked the power input by starting the engine with GPS connected ( a no no not told to users by manufacturer)

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?
I can't believe you even admit to owning stolen property.
Yes multiple attempts will lock the garmin, And you will only be able to unlock it by going to the security location that was used when the security pin was input into the system.
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.
