Your only other option would be to send the unit to Garmin with proof of purchase and ask them to unlock it. Otherwise, you will not be able to use the unit.

Forgot security for garmin 1350


Hello,

If this is the security PIN number, going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

I bought a Garmin Nuvi 200 at a yard sale and it is Locked with a security pin. It asked for a PIN #. Does anyone know how to reset the security lock.


You actually have two problems; you won't just need the pin code, but will need to know at which location the pin code was set.

The system is designed to make stolen Nuvi's useless and cannot be bypassed without internal hardware changes which will cost more than replacing the unit. Unless you can obtain the pin code AND take the Nuvi to the location it was originally entered then it's totally unusable.

Chalk it down to experience and resell yours as being for spares or repairs.

Unlocking garmin nuvi 200


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. There is no hack, crack, bypass or any other reset option.

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.
