The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

I recently bought a garmin c550 from ebay and the screen it is locked i need to know how to unlock the screen do not have the unlock code can you help ?


Garmin's security code is setup in such a way that if you forget the code you can drive to a previously set "security" location which would then allow you to turn on the machine without the code.You could then use the menu system to clear the code. What you will have to do is either try to get the code from the person you bought it from or send in the unit and a copy of your receipt to Garmin to have them clear the code.

I need unlock garmin c550


Enter your PIN number, or take the unit back to the "Security Location" and it will unlock by itself. You can then enter a new PIN unlock code.

HOW CAN YOU UNLOCK A CODE LOCKED UNIT if you dont have the code?


No, unfortunately. You either need to drive to the secure place to unlock it, or contact Garmin to have it unlocked. Once unlocked, I would recommend turning Garmin Lock OFF.

Need factory default for a garmin streetpilot c550 gps or pin unlock code?


There is no factory default unlock PIN code. You will need to take the unit back to your security location and it will automatically unlock.

Lock


If it is the garmin lock, then you need to take the unit to your sercure area, and the unit will unlock. This should be where ever it was you set up the unit.
If you don't remember either. Then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.

Garmin c550 unlock pin#


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.

Forget pin code


If you can send it in to Garmin to have it unlocked, then there must be a "master" code. Since the USB port is dead until the unit is unlocked, Garmin must have to either enter in some special code or reset the unit in some special way.

How do you get rid of the Pin Number?


Refer Page 6 of Garmin C550 Owner's Manual. If you forget your PIN number, drive to your security location where you set the PIN and this will unlock the unit. Richard New Zealand
