If you do not remember the pin number that initialized the unit with, then the only other option is to go to security location you established. This will unlock the device.

Only other solution is to mail the unit back to Garmin service for support. Proof of purchase is likely to be required.

Unlock garmin nuvi 680


Hello,

The Garmin security lock can only be unlocked or changed with the 4 digit pass code.
The pass code can only be reset by entering the original pass code or sending it to Garmin to be reset.

I think I did something wrong, it gave me a new password, then ask me to create a new password, how can I create a new pass word when the system only know the old pass word


The Garmin NEVER "creates" a PIN. You can choose a PIN and you can choose to change the PIN. If you have entered a PIN that you do not remember, you can take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.

I lock my phone and forget my password for my garmin nuvi


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.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

I forgot my pass code to unlock my nuvi


This is a scripted massage, take what you need from it.

If it is the garmin lock you are referring to, you need to enter the security number you programmed into in on initial set up. If you do not have or remember the code, then the GPS must be turned on in its secure site, this is where ever you were when you set up the garmin. Driveway, backyard, etc. If you don't have access to either of these then the unit has to be returned to garmin to have it unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.
