Question about Garmin zumo 450 GPS Receiver
I have had this problem myself after buying a unit on ebay.
on some units you can still use the webupdater (click here for webupdater)
after i bought mine i google searched and came across this ebay posting warning people
unfortunetly this is a theft deterrent, It helps track stolen gps receivers. The only way around it is to call tech support and they will ask you some questions and you may as in my case they asked me to show them a copy of the paypal reciept and in a about a hour they unlocked it. Its not that big of a deal and lots of people have to do this.
And on this unit as far as it goes there is no way to update it without going through this process. Im sure its not the answer you want to hear. But garmins this new do not have the update from flash feature. as well as are not capable on 96% of units to run custom/hacked firmware. Not that i would ever recommend doing that.

This is going to be tough. There is no way round. Many people have actually started selling stolen or lost gps on sites like ebay and other auction / bidding sites. Even to delete the registration would be a tough call.Either you need to call the seller and ask for user name and password and change the information there. ( I am not sure whether this option has been changed or not / earlier this is an alternate option ).
I guess now the previous owner needs to call Garmin for the same.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
