Here's the deal - while some of these posts are legitimate, some may actually be people who obtained stolen units that are locked. The only way to get these unlocked is to actually SEND the unit to Garmin and they will confirm that you are the rightful owner and then unlock the unit. If you cannot prove rightful ownership, then you are in possession of a nice paperweight. As it should be. :)

Send your unit to Garmin. Chances are if you got it a "garage" sale and its locked it's because whoever actually owned it put in a PIN so when it got stolen, whoever ended up with it (you) would get to enjoy their stolen property. Do the real owners a favor and look it up on stolen911.com and check the stolen GPS database there. Then return it to its rightful owner.

    Sometimes people do get rid of Garmin's, a passed on relative or upgrade replacement. Be sweet, that was kinda judgmental and a mean accusation to a buyer of a used Garmin. After all, how is the buyer to know if the sale was like mentioned? Innocent sales CAN and do happen!

Hi Justkiddingx,

Where do you live?

    No idea where that is but assume it's N America somewhere.
    You could try calling support on one of these numbers-

I know of 3 people who have had their cars broken into with the sole purpose of getting their GPS systems. Locations & why don't mattter: but I have to ask you geniuses who know how to unlock these systems, should u have your house broken into & ur stuff sold around the country with the help of others who will facilitate unlock codes for your secured gadgets? If u want to cap the crime, don't participate. Send your GPS to Garmin (e.g. write off as tax expense, etc). On the other hand get ur services at the 'corner' as u wish.

My kids were playing with my system(garmin nuvi 1350)and they were smart enough to lock it,but couldnot remember what they typed in,so now i'm locked out.Is there a factory code that can help me out?Thank...


you must return yo with-in 50 meters of the SECURITY LOCATION you first unlocked your gps...( most are at your home or office location )

once there your unit will unlock for you automatically, at this point reset your pin number or disable it ... to do that go to Tools.....Settings.....Security

other than that you would have to send it back to Garmin with the sales receipt .. All Garmin GPS are registered with garmin be4 they can download maps with the owners name and address

I just bought a garmin nuvi 265 at a garage sale and its asking for a pin is therew a default pin or did i just wast my money


The previous owner must call Garmin and have it released from there name for you to re-register it, or give you the Pin Number.

If they forgot the pin number you must go to the SECURITY LOCATION of where they first set up the gps to automatically unlock for you then change the Pin number at the point.

Garmin nuvi 205w CAN'T UNLOCK MAPS don't have codes it is used...


You are out of luck. Garmin will only talk to and assist registered owners. The registered owner has to deregister the device before a new owner register it and update the maps.

I bought a pack and play at a rummage sale and


Believe it or not, the rails will not lock unless the bottom is slightly raised up. Then you can flatten the bottom. Unlocking works the same way, be sure that the bottom is lifted up partially. Hope that helps, I had the same problem.

Garmin nuvi 660 forget my pin


The only options you have when it comes to a locked unit is to enter the correct PIN, go to the location where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin. There is no way to unlock a PIN locked unit without the correct PIN or location.

Forget my gps nuvi pin


There is no way to unlock a locked GPS without the PIN or going to the location where the PIN was set. If you do not know these, the unit must be sent back to Garmin.
