Sadly, our Garmin Nuvi 255W was stolen out of our car. I'm trying to see if the following is the serial number for our unit. Taken off of the outside of the box: 1WM264926.


The chances of the unit being retrieved is pretty slim. Keep the box just in case.

Hopefully you already had set the security inside the unit. This means that the thief will not be able to use it.

I would take it back and demand a new one or replacement one. Some how someone must of you your serial number to register there, and now garmin seem to think that yours is stolen. Even though it is not. Garmin will lock the unit if a product gets, stolen and if someone else will try to update.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200, it was stolen, where would I find the serial number?


The serial number is on the bottom of the unit where the decal is. You may also find a white sticker on the box too. Always write this info down and keep it in a safe place before using an item.

How do I get the serial number for my Garmin Nuvi for updating maps? Boxd stolen shortly after I bought it. And the plastic strip on the case has rubbed off, so I can't read it off there.


If you registered it through Garmin go to Garmin.com log in and it will be under my products if not download Garmin "WebUpdater" turn on devive, connect to computer, run the program (find device)... It will thell you the product serial number. Register your device and it will stay on the Garmin website for future reference.

A stolen GPSMAP 60Cx is it posible to locate it once it is turned on???


Sorry, no. Report serial number and internal ID number(if known) to Garmin and the Police. If a map is ever unlocked for it or it comes in for repair at least Garmin will know.

I think my nuvi was stolen


No, A GPS only has a receiver. It does not have a transmitter that can be used for locating. If you know your Nuvi's serial number and User ID number, you might want to report it to Garmin as well as your local Police. If the unit is ever turned into Garmin for repair, they will notify the authorities and you will get it back.

You can also post your stolen Nuvi here as well:
