Unless you have the pin number you cannot unlock it I'm afraid. Your only option is to send it to garmin with proof of ownership to have it unlocked. Garmin say this is to prevent anyone who steals one being able to use it.

I have a garmin nuvi gps and my sone lock it now we cant get it unlockwat can i do


Take it to where your son locked it and it will automatically unlock. If not, you have to send it to Garmin with the original receipt and they will unlock it for you. There may be a service charge for this. If you don't have the original receipt, they will not unlock it.

How do I reset pin number as my husbands son must have messed with it before he put in a pin number . I cannot find any reset button.


Question: How do I unlock my device if I have forgotten the PIN number?
Answer: If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

To contact Product Support in your area go to http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

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.
