You have to go back to the location you set the original pin (home) and it will then let you put a new one in

I forgot my pin code for the nuvi265 I dont know any way to get it to reset.


You can take it back to your security location which you set when you entered the PIN code. It will then automatically unlock and you can change the PIN code to something you will remember.

I do not remember the location of wich i enterd my pin code


If you do not remember your PIN code, and do not remember the security location, you will have to send it back to Garmin with an original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will unlock it for a fee. This is a security feature on the Garmin units to prevent them from being used if they are stolen.

Take the unit to the location at which you first entered the PIN. The unit will unlock and you can reset the PIN to something you can remember.

Forgot my pin


Wedll if this is not a stolen GPS Then the matter is simple. Take it back to the exact coordinates that you set the pin in. Then you will be able to access the pin setup and reset it to a new password. Your only other choice is to send it to Garmin, but if it has been listed as stolen, then expect the cops! No one forgets their pin or fails to remember the instructions for setting and recovering their pin.


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. “

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

Unlock pin number


If you don't remember your lock code. you need to take the unit to your secure spot, this should be where ever you set up the machine. once in the security area, turn the machine on, at that point you can change the code. If you don't remember either, then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

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.

... Invalid PIN number


The PIN is an optional feature which should not pop up if the unit is brand new.  If you got it used, get the PIN from whoever sold it to you.
