You will need to contact garmin to do this. Their website is www.garmin.com when you get to there web page look at the top right hand corner where it says My garmin. From there set up a new account once you do this then contact their technical support either by phone or by email. From there they can instruct you what you need to do to reset the pin number.
I hope this helps you out and if it does please give me a YES on the page you receive my response on. Thank you
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking
Key, and it's a code that's associated with a mobile phone SIM card. This could have happened because either you have entered the SIM
card's PIN incorrectly three times or your network operator has
locked your SIM Card.
You would need to contact your network operator so they can unlock the SIM for you.
NOTE: Only your mobile phone
network operator can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock your
Unfortunately without the receipt you won't be able to make this work. When a Garmin PIN is set the user is allowed to pick a location that they can go to in case they forget the PIN. If they turn the unit on while at that location the unit will not ask for the PIN. The only other way to reset the PIN is to sent it back to Garmin. If it was bought at a police auction they would have supplied you with some kind of a transaction record. I would call Garmin Support at 800-800-1020 M-T 8AM-6PM Fri 8AM-5PM Central time. Explain the situation to them and they might be willing to fix it for you. Normally if they are sent a GPS that doesn't come with a receipt they will contact the Police in the registered user's area. Good luck.
1) Get the PIN from whoever you bought it from.
2) Take the GPS to the location it was at when the PIN was set.
3) Send the unit to Garmin to have it reset. For return information: CLICK HERE
If you can't get the PIN from whoever sold it to you online, it is probably a stolen unit. You should contact your local police dept with a the serial number to see if it turns up in their database. If it is stolen, you may be eligible for a refund from the online auction house because you were defrauded. At the very least you should file a complaint with the auction house to prevent this sub-human from screwing other people the way he screwed you.
This is not a bad situation however its gonna require some effort on your part in research.
Here is 2 links.
The first one is a step by step and should handle this, The second is a backup, if the first dont work for you the second shoudl but requires a fee.
Good luck and hope I helped :0)
