The problem that you're experiencing is a security feature called Garmin Lock. It's found in most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. Outside of remembering the PIN, you have limited options. Either you can go to the same place where it was initially changed. It would unlock and then you could reset. But other than this, i am sorry there are no bypass.

Take a look at :-

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

What's "Trips"? Please review it for me.

No problem dude. I'm using this application. it rocks! It let's you plan upcoming trips with your friends. Share your past travel adventures on your profile. What trips have you been on, who'd you go with, and when. Then attach a photo album. See your trips on a map. Where have you been? Where are you going next? Overall: This ambitious app aims to cover all things surrounding the "Trip". You can create a future trip and invite your pals to join you on the venture, post travel pics from a past spring break south of the border, or contact strangers with similar trip styles to yourself. "Trips" is function over form at this point and I expect/hope to see more efficient applications, similar in objective, as the Facebook Platform grows out of infancy.

Forgot pin

There is a reset button, but it will NOT reset the PIN. Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was first entered and it will unlock. You can then change the PIN to something you can remember.
