You can find the security PIN on the device, at the bottom of the device. But if you are using Win Vista or Win 7, you can select the 2nd option on the page where it asks you for the PIN. The 2nd option would look like: I don't have the PIN, i would rather connect using using security key. This will be shown if you already have some security enabled on your wireless network. If its an unsecured network, The option would look like: I don't want to configure my network now, I just want to connect. Then you can connect with either the security or unsecured.

For further clarifications, revert!
Thanks for asking,

PIN Number is an 8 digit Number present at the bottom of every router... If your network is already secured with a password then you can use your password instead of PIN number by following the solution given by "arvinds88"....
If you enter the PIN number your network name and password will be reconfigured, The name of your network will change to the name of your wireless computer, your network password will become a random one, also all the other wireless devices that are already connected to your wireless network will get disconnected...

  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.

3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

What is the pin code as ive forgot. its the code you have when you buy it with thanks jean. and how would i be able to change the code


The SECURITY LOCATION is where you first set up your GPS, it could of been where you live or work at.

If you go with-in 50 meters of the security location the GPS will autmatically unlock..... once unlocked you can re-new your pin number.

If you dont know where your security location or pin number is you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.

I was givin a streetpilot 510c by my grand prents that they had brought in western Aust as they have forgotin the pin number and were in W.A. when they first set it up since i live in victoria a 6 hour...


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.

There are only three options to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the Security Location (where the PIN was first entered)
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin with proof of purchase.

If you are unable to do any of these, you cannot unlock the unit. It is a security feature to prevent the from being of any use to thieves.

I recieve a garmin as a gift @ it now has a code lock on it how can i unlock my garmin 260


The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location. (where it was orig programmed)
To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
  1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
  4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
  5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
  6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
  7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
  8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
  9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.

Unlock code for my garmin nuvi 350


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.

PIN LOCK


There is no workaround this SECURITY feature. If there was, it wouldn't be much of a security feature at all. You MUST enter the correct PIN, or take the unit to where the PIN was initially entered. Otherwise, the unit WILL NOT OPERATE and must be returned to Garmin.
