I forgot the password on my garmin nuvi 205, how


I've been trawling for unanswered questions; this information may be too late for you (or perhaps it may help you resurrect a useless machine which you have put away) but it will certainly help others searching for advice with the same problem.

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location you chose when activating Garmin Lock: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

I forgot my passcode for my gsrmin nuvi 250w cause i was over seas for a year


Unless you created a security location there is not way to reset the password other than having Garmin do it for you. When you set your password your GPS would have given you the chance to set a location. That way if you forgot your password you could drive to your location and be able to turn on and use your GPS without inputting the code. You could then go through the menu system and wipe out the need for a password. Now you'll have to send your GPS, along with your receipt, to Garmin, They will reset your password for you and send the unit back to you.

I forgot my password for my garmin nuvi 255w. what can i do?


Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.
