I just bought a garmin nuvi 265 at a garage sale and its asking for a pin is therew a default pin or did i just wast my money


The previous owner must call Garmin and have it released from there name for you to re-register it, or give you the Pin Number.

If they forgot the pin number you must go to the SECURITY LOCATION of where they first set up the gps to automatically unlock for you then change the Pin number at the point.

If you forget the pin number you can only start the satnav by going to your security location. To get the pin reset the satnav has to be returned to Garmin with proof of ownership e.g. a receipt. Not much help I'm afraid but this is to stop anyone stealing it and being able to reset the pin.

Pin code unlock


You have Garmin Lock activated and there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it).

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.

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

Forgot pin number


did u set up ur own PIN NUMBER? if u did, do a reset, there should be a lil button behind it that u push with a needle or something shart, if not, try using the generic pin codes as ascending from 1 and up or pure zeros or ones.

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
