Take the unit to the location at which you first entered the PIN. This is your security location. The unit will unlock and you can reset the PIN.

I forget unlock pin for garmin 265w serial number 1r2158775


Only way to have the unit unlocked is to enter the correct PIN # or take the unit to the area where the PIN was set and it will auto-unlock. Last option is to send the unit to Garmin. More info can be found here:

Unlock garmin gps 760


For security reasons the only way you can unlock your Nuvi is to go to the Security location that you set up the programing... it will then automatically unlock for you.. Garmin will not unlock over the telephone.

You can go to the www.Garmin.com and get their phone number or address to send the unit to unlock

Love my Nuvi760

Unlock gps 760 garmin ilost the 4 pin number


The only way to do it is to go to the location you set as "home" in the GPS. When you are at that location, the GPS will not ask you for a PIN and you can then go in and change the PIN.

If you don't know what the home location is, you'll need to contact Garmin http://www.garmin.com

There are so many of these being stolen from vehicles, the PIN is designed to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!

I need a code to unlock my garmin 760 gps that i bought


Cathy, what follows below is cut and pasted from a Garmin tip I wrote for your problem:-

"You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another."

So to summarise, unless your seller knows the PIN or unless the seller can take the unit to where Garmin Lock was set up in order to deactivate it for you, you have purchased a useless brick, sorry.

I forget my password. Garmin nuvi 760


I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

My garmin nuvi car gps pin number forget...so how i can get the pin number?!


Take it back to your secure location and it will automatically unlock.
If you don't remember where that is, send it in to Garmin with your original receipt and they will unlock it for you.

Lost pin number


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.
