Unfortunately, you don't have any quick and easy options, the security wouldn't be much use if it were otherwise. Garmin Lock has been activated and can only be disabled by either entering the correct PIN or by turning the unit on at its "security location". This will be the place where the PIN was originally set. Garmin will not assist you as you are not the original purchaser.

Your only fix is to contact your grandparents to ask if they remember where they set up the PIN number. As the unit strongly advises that the security location is not the owner's home address this may not be straightforward. If they can remember, then post the unit back to them so that they can take it to the security location and disable Garmin Lock. If this is not possible, then your grandparents should contact Garmin who will assist them if they have proof of purchase or have previously registered the unit with Garmin.

You cannot unlock (or "reset") a locked unit without the PIN number or going to the location where the PIN was set. The only other option you have is to send the unit to Garmin.
