Forgot security for garmin 1350


Hello,

If this is the security PIN number, going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

Forgot pin code


Performing a reset will NOT reset the PIN. There are only three ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. This is the Security Location.
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin. If you are unable to provide proof of purchase to Garmin, however, they will NOT return the unit to you.

I forgot my pin. how can i reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin2_bing.gif:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS.

Hello i have a garmin c550 gps and for some reason it blocked on me i forgot my pin nunber i guess... i dont know how to reset it and i dont have my manual with me....


The manual would not help you. Resetting the unit (even a Master Reset) will NOT remove or reset the PIN. Your options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:

1 - Enter the correct PIN.
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set.
3 - Return the unit to Garmin.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

Forgot my password, need a reset code


To reset the GPS, put your thumbnail under the Garmin logo and pull off the faceplate. Press the reset button.

If you still need PIN, you can either drive to secure location to unlock the GPS and if you don't know it, the only other way to unlock it is to contact Garmin.

Unlock garmin nuvi250w


I think you'll have to ship it to Garmin, the pin is stored in flash rom and can't be erased by resetting it. You will need proof of purchase too. You could of course hook it up to a pc and snoop around on the flash disk, or try to update the firmware and see if that helps.
