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. Please take a moment to rate my speedy and free answer.

I forgot pin for 3ds . how can I change my pin


If you forget your PIN, it's possible to reset it by following these steps:
  1. Open the System Settings software from the HOME Menu.
  2. Select Parental Controls and tap "Forgot PIN".
  3. You will be prompted to enter the answer to your secret question. Once entered, you will gain access to the Parental Controls front page. You can reset your PIN here by tapping "Change PIN" and following the on-screen instructions.
If you have also forgotten the answer to your secret question, you can have a master key sent to your registered email address by following these steps:
  1. Open the System Settings software from the HOME Menu.
  2. Select Parental Controls and tap "Forgot PIN".
  3. When prompted to enter the answer to your secret question, tap "I Forgot". If the partial email address displayed on screen is correct, tap "OK". The system will connect to the internet and display further information. Shortly an email containing a master key will be sent to your registered email address. The master key is valid for 48 hours.

I forgot my pin


Your carrier will be able to help you. Just call them.
In the future, once you have the PIN, change your phone settings to not need the PIN.

Asking for pin i forgot pin


You will need to restore your IPOD for factory defaults using ITUNES.
Connect your IPOD to your PC, open ITUNES and select Restore in the summary tab.
This will erase all the data on your IPOD and Reset all the settings. It is unavoidable to lose data if you have forgotten your PIN.
