Unfortunately there is no way to know the PIN code, it can be reset but needs to be done by Garmin. Let me know if you need their contact info.

Thanks
Tim

You'll have to remember the 4 digit PIN that you put in. If you have forgot it then go to the Secure Location that you selected when you first configured the device and unlock it from there. If you have forgot that too then you have only one option left: send it back to Garmin with a proof of purchase.

My garmin 200 gps is not coming on?


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset on the unit.
Resetting Your nüvi
If your unit stops responding, turn off the unit, and then turn it back on. If this does not help, perform a reset using the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
Caution: Do not reset your nüvi with a ballpoint pen or other sharp object, which can damage your unit.
1. Disconnect the nüvi from external power.
2. Press the Reset button on the bottom of the nüvi.
3. Connect the nüvi to a power source.

A hard reset can also be done but will erase all the user data.
This is done by with the unit off and pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while turning the unit on.

You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

My gps will not charge anymore. My car outlet works with other devices but not my gps unit


Many Garmin units develop this problem if they never connect to an AC adapter (some Garmin's included an AC adapter in the box - not so much anymore though) or to a computer's USB port.

Try connecting to either over night and see if the problem is resolved. Garmin also identified a problem with batteries that were failing prematurely. The models involved were certain serial numbers of the following models:

nüvi 200W, 250W, & 260W
nüvi 7xx (where xx is a two-digit number)

If you have one of the models listed above, you can check to see if it has one of the defective batteries by entering your serial number on this page.

You didn't include a manufacturer or model number - so the above may not apply to you - however - regardless of brand or model, no battery will last forever. Exposure to extremes in temperatures and humidity all work to shorten the life of ANY battery. Yours may have reached that point. You may be able to replace the battery on your own - or have to send it to the manufacturer for replacement.

Lost pin number


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.

USA Garmin nuvi 200. Can I download Ireland map?


Hi,
You will have to buy a version of European maps. After you download them into your Garmin it will work just like in the US.
Here is a link I found for you. It looks like you need to buy all of Europe but there may be a way to just buy individual countries. Best wishes on your trip.

Garmin nuvi 300 asking for pin number


You only have (2) solutions:

1. Take the unit to where the secure location where the PIN was set and it will not ask your for the PIN. Then you can delete it or change it.

2. The PIN is located in non-volatile memory and can not be reset except by the factory.


Attention FIxya: Any other solution promotes hacking. The above options are from the user manual.
