Resetting the unit will NOT reset the PIN. Assuming your 3 year old had the presence of mind to enter the exact same 4 digits twice in a row (which is required to lock the unit with the PIN), simply take the unit to the area where your child locked it. This is the Security Location to which the unit is referring, and it will unlock allowing you to change or remove the PIN.

When i turn on my garmin nuvi 205 it asks for a pin but i fogot it wha can i do


im sure this is not the answer your looking for, but If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c5xx and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

My boss's nuvi is now all sudden asking for a pin and he has asked my to unlock it , i updated it 2 weeks ago , and had no pin that i knew of at the time , where is this coming from it is now locked


You have to return to the SECURITY LOCATION of where you (or your boss ) first opened your map up from... could be the home or office location.... once there it will automatically unlock for you then you would have to renew the pin on the security feature or disable it........

other than that you would have to send it back to Garmin with the proper ownership receipt of unit..... all Garmins are registered when first operated with Garmin with the owners name and serial number of unit in case of stolen or lost

    Ok, first of all, in order to PIN lock the unit, you have to enter the same exact 4 numbers twice in a row. Even if your 2 year old was coordinated enough to do that, the security location for the unit is the location at which the PIN was entered. Therefore, assuming you were not touring Europe at the time the PIN was entered, the unit would unlock whenever you returned to where the unit was locked originally.

    No, resetting the unit will NOT reset or remove the PIN. The only other thing you can do is send the unit back to Garmin. But beware: if you cannot prove to Garmin you legitimately purchased this unit, they will NOT return it to you.
