All you need to do is go to the location where you entered the PIN. Go to that location and power up the unit. It won't ask you for the PIN when you are at the location that it was entered. If you don't know the location, you will need to send the unit back to Garmon to be reset. These are features to make the unit useless to thieves.

Good luck!

Forgot security for garmin 1350


Hello,

If this is the security PIN number, 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.

Forgot password cant get it unlocked need to do a master reset


if you forgot your pin number you must return to the SECURITY LOCATION...... the security location is where you first set up your gps....( your home or office ) then the unit will automatically unlock for you, remember to reset your pin number when unlocked..

Other than that you would have to send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.

I forgot my pin. how can i reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin2_bing.gif:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi


You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

Need unlock code


No such thing as a "Default PIN" on the Garmin. The PIN is completely user set. If the unit is yours and you forgot your PIN, take the unit to the location at which you set the PIN and the unit will unlock automatically and you can reset the PIN. Otherwise, you can send the unit to Garmin to unlock. However, if they determine that you are NOT the owner of record, they will return the unit to it's rightful owner.

I locked my garmin G.P.S. system


Drive it back to the location you set as your security location and it will unlock. You can then reset the PIN. If you can't do that, you'll have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt and they will unlock for you.

A Master Reset WILL NOT reset the PIN. Your only options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin are:
1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was originally entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin.
