Pin Removal Hi, I'd like to remove a pin code from my Garmin 200 gps reciever. Someone I left inside my car had set the pin and i don't know who set the pin and what the pin is. When I try to insert my original pin, it refuses my pin, it says I have to go to my security location to reset. Please help.

To reset, you have to go to the home location. That is the security location.

The only other solution to unlock this model GPS is to send it to Garmin with the proof of purchase. They are the only ones who can unlock your GPS. If you read the instruction booklet that came with the GPS, they expain the same thing I am indicating here. Call the Garmin support for details.

My brother passed away and his wife gave me a garmin nuvi 200 and it has a pin code that know one knows. how can i master reset it so i can use the device

There is no way to perform a master rest to clear the PIN. You either have to have the PIN number or contact Garmin to unlock it for you for a fee. I would first try turning the unit on where your brother lived or where he worked and the unit will not ask for the PIN. This is called the safe location. You can then change the PIN. He probably set the PIN at some place where he knows well.

Hi. I forgot the pin code for my nuvi310. can you help me please?

Garmin Pin codes are accessed ( when forgotten) By taking it back to the coordinates that it was first set. You would know where you were when you set the pin code. So just mosey on back there and once in place access your unit and reset the code.

There is no master code, that process IS the master code access

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Did you buy it brand new? If so, then someone must have returned it previously after they set the security pin. The only way to gain access to your GPS is to either go to the saved security location (if one was also set) which after acquiring the satelites will unlock the device and then you can reset the pin, or to call Garmin or go to a Garmin authorized dealer. This security pin is there for a reason.
