If you are the legitimate owner, you can send your unit back to Garmin to be unlocked. Be prepared to provide rock-solid proof of ownership because Garmin has a program that prevents stolen units from ever working again. It's one of the reasons that I purchased it. As word gets out that you cannot unlock a stolen unit, thieves will be deterred from stealing them in the first place. And if you try to open the unit to see if there is any easy jumper or something, you will permanently destroy it.

Go to location where you set the code or send it to Garmin to unlock

I did not set a pin for my garmin but now it is asking for one. i tried to do a hard reset but that did not let me through. can i just re register it? please help


Hello,

The reset will not unlock the unit.
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.

I forgot my pin number. How can I reset it. I did not do anything about the security location to begin with.


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."
So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

Garmin Nuvi PIN reset?


I think the true purpose of the pin is for another income stream to garmin they want $110 to unlock it. If not then why not just register a pin when you register for the warranty then just use your MY GARMIN to get it when you need it???

Garmin 650 Pin Reset


According to the instructions once the PIN is set there are only 2 ways to unlock the unit.
#1 go to your "Security Place" (too far away for you)
#2 send it back to Garmin with proof of valid registration or proof of purchase.
There's may be a special reset button inside the unit, the main battery and/or if it has a backup battery may have to be disconnected, it may use flash memory and Garmin would have some sort of re-programmer to erase the old PIN. (I'm not suggesting or recommending taking your Garmin apart).
At least it's good to know that if stolen, it's not easy for the thief to reset and use it.
