I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

    A friend just called looking for help, his lady friend (older couple) has a garmin nuvi 1300 series, I setup the pin number and security location. He said that while it has worked well in the past, they cannot get the garmin to unlock with the security code. They have both tried unsuccessfully. Had this problem before?

How to change password on garmin nuvi 1300?


First you have to know the password or know where the password was set. once the Garmin is unlocked you can go into the settings sscreen and change it. if you "forget" the password take the Garmin back to where you locked it and it should allow you to use it normally.
otherwise SOL. those don't unlock with any tools. even the Garmin Tech's cant help you without you sending them the GPS. Sweet revenge when a unit is stolen.

Brand new Garmin 1300. Husband now travelling, un...


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
