If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo orStreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you canunlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Locationis the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on yourdevice. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.(Approximately 150 feet from that location)

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact ProductSupport for assistance. Please note Garmin will require a copy of the receiptand there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered bythe warranty. So in summary 1)Remember your password. 2) Go to yoursecurity location 3) Pay for Garmin tounlock it for you.

I hav a garmin c550 and cant remember da pincode? help meplease to unlock it

Take the unit back to your security location which you sent when you first got the GPS. Without knowing the PIN or security location, you will not be able to unlock the unit. You will have to send it in to Garmin to be unlocked, and you will have to include your receipt from an authorized dealer.
