Unlocking garmin nuvi 680

Like the other blogs posted I also cannot unlock my device. It was a gift and am trying to figure out to unlock it without having to send it to Garmin. Any suggestions?

    no i dont have the manual

  • magic01 Jun 25, 2008

    After resetting the factorty settings by holding the screen w/power button I got the white screen with the black dot and followed the directions and still it is asking for the PIN number.



    I don't know what you mean by Right-up, Left up... there are no directional buttons to press to correspond with that. I only have a numeric keypad screen that asks for me to enter PIN.

    The manual only references resetting the device using the reset button on the back which I tried before using the forum.

  • magic01 Jun 25, 2008

    If anyone has any other suggestions let me know... I've already tried resetting the device using the reset button and resetting the manufacturers settings with no luck.

    Thanks for the assistance but no one has offered any solutions that remedy the situation. I've tried all resets none of which clear PIN.

Your best bet would be to call them, dont send it in but call them... or try something simple such as 1234 ? There are also websites out there that will get the code (only problem is they want you to fork over your cash)

One can enter a four-digit security code that requires anyone without (or forgets) the code to return to the "Secure Area" to unlock the unit. Otherwise, it must be returned to Garmin to get it unlocked.

    Ask the seller for the Garmin lock pin, location, or a refund on the stolen GPS. I'd hope it's not easy to unlock the GPS without the pin or security location. Perhaps you should record the serial # of my Garmin so that if it's stolen you can report it to Garmin and hope they don't unlock it for whoever sends it in ?

    Your only options are to find the seller or send the unit to Garmin

Here's a link for the manual. There is also a preset location for unlocking without the pin.

    Unfortunately, if you don't have the pin or security location, then your only other option is sending it to Garmin.

    try this one to unlock your gps

    Right up, left up, left down, left up, right up, left up

    if this doesnot work try this to reset to factory settings



    1- Turn off unit.

    2- press and hold the bottom right corner of the screen.

    3-While still pressing and holding bottom right corner, press and hold power button and continue holding both until a white screen appears with a black dot.

    4- follow the on screen directions and your unit will be back to the day you first got it.

  • gopinath pasupathy Jun 25, 2008

    try this one
    you can drive to the specific "Secure" location". A secure location is a saved location on the map where you can unlock the GPS
    even if you've forgotten the PIN code

  • gopinath pasupathy Jun 25, 2008

    if you own the serial number ....then you can insert it in garmin site and get unlock code .........if you dont have then no other chance you have to send it to garmin to get unlocked

When I am trying to send gifts (or request gifts) to friends no names come up when I click the 'send' button - is there a setting I need to change? I can only send gifts when I receive them...


That is a computer network arranagment where an established structure allows to deliver messages from which require return responses. Usually the entity that sends the messages on the network enables the features either as subscriptions to allow sending via network structures. For example, the computer structure is capacble of telecommuncating either sending and receiving once features are enabled. However, observe the device to ascertain whether has the functions to send messages and not only receiver gadget. Usually computer innovated telephone devices would send messages to another device that is least capable to transmiting at compared capacities. Refer with the device support expert to ascertain the capacities or functionality requirements. Also refer with the device retail markets to acquire devices that have features multitasking related.

Actually my aunt from USA gifted me...so am clueless what to do to unlock it


If you have Apple iPhone 3G the easiest way is to upgrade it to version 3.0 and than run RedSnoW ( download it from here http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/126908912/redsn0w-in-june ) to jail break it
Than run CYDIA and add UltraSn0w repository
repo666.ultrasn0w.com

install UltraSnow from here and reboot your phone it will be jail broken and working , I did the same on mine and had tried it in China , Dubai and Pakistan

If you like the solution a rating will be most welcome
