Yes, you can load the map of "southern Africa" which includes South Africa. Go to the tomtom website ... click Maps ... look for "Map of the World" ... and look for Southern Africa.

Then you can purchase the map ...and, download it to your TomTom ...

I need a code to unlock my garmin 760 gps that i bought


Cathy, what follows below is cut and pasted from a Garmin tip I wrote for your problem:-

"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).

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."

So to summarise, unless your seller knows the PIN or unless the seller can take the unit to where Garmin Lock was set up in order to deactivate it for you, you have purchased a useless brick, sorry.

Code unlock


You have Garmin lock activated and there are two ways to disable it. The first is to enter the PIN code, which you have forgotten, but the second method is to take the unit to the "security location" where you initially chose your PIN code. Garmin recommend that this is NOT your home or workplace as they are the places a thief is likely to take your unit to in order to try and bypass the PIN.

If you cannot recall either the PIN or the security location then the unit can only be unlocked for you by Garmin. The service is only available to the registered user and only if proof of purchase is also provided. If you didn't register your warranty or if you don't have proof of purchase then the unit is effectively scrap as it is unusable. Even if you do meet Garmin's requirements there is a charge for the service, and so unless your unit has up to date maps the investment is probably not cost-effective.

Hopefully you'll remember your security location and will regain use of your Garmin. If so, don't forget to reset the PIN code, and please take a moment to rate my answer.

Unlock pin nuvi 350


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.

Unable to unlock new maps


Where did you download the Australian maps from? If from Garmin, contact Garmin for the unlock code. Maps have to be unlocked to a specific unit.

If you downloaded the maps from the internet, you will still need to contact Garmin for an unlock code.
