The only ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin are to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

My pin doesnt work and I dont know how to reset my garmin nuvi 205


If your pin does not work, you need to go to your security location (location of when you set the pin the very first time) to unlock it. If you don't remember that you need to call garmin at 1-800-800-1020 to set up an rma to send the unit in to have it unlocked.

GARMIN C550


Hi Don,

 

You probably just need to find the reciept where you bought the C550.  Sounds like Garmin is protecting its customers when they say $300.  This is most unfortunate thing to happen to you.  Is the Garmin $300 issue as I thought and related to you not having the registration code or Reciept?

I need to reset my PIN on my Garmin Nuvi 205W. I cannot remember the PIN and apparently my house is not the "safe"location.


you must return the unit back to Garmin with the proper sales receipt to have them unlock it, they should have the unit registered with them withthe proper owners name.

Forgot password cant get it unlocked need to do a master reset


if you forgot your pin number you must return to the SECURITY LOCATION...... the security location is where you first set up your gps....( your home or office ) then the unit will automatically unlock for you, remember to reset your pin number when unlocked..

Other than that you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.

Forgot pin


There is a reset button, but it will NOT reset the PIN. Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was first entered and it will unlock. You can then change the PIN to something you can remember.

I forgot my pin number


Hi,

The default Password is 1234.However, if you have changed it and wanted to reset it, you need to remember the Changed Pin. There is no Bypass as this is a security measure. There is no Unlock or Hacking Codes. If you remember the place where it was changed, it will unlock itself and you could change the password.

The only solution would be to Contact Garmin. You would need to send them the receipt of purchase. They would charge you $110 for the same.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
