You need to do a hardreset on the pda to get the password removed.

    Dell Axim x50 / x50v / x51 / x51v:

    Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.

What is the code to unlock garmin 285 w


you bought a stolen device and the code was locked by the previous owner. The only way to get the code unlocked without knowing it is to take it back to where the code was set (previous owner?) then it will let you unlock without the code. Otherwise you bought a paperweight.

Bought a garmin second hand already registered so I can't download from Garmin site How do I get maps for America


You need to either get the previous owner to remove the satnav from their site or give you the log in details. To remove it from the previous owner's site;
  • They need to log in to myGarmin
  • Click on the "myProducts" tab at the top of the screen
  • The name of the satnav (i.e. nuvi 255W) will be shown here and under it in blue writing the word "Details"
  • Click on "Details"
  • On the next screen click on "Delete Registration"
Once it's deleted you should be able to register it under your own name. If you don't know the previous owner or can't contact them I'm afraid it won't be possible to update it.

I bought this model froma lad in the tradeit it requires a password which idont have and i can no longer find the lad is there anything i can do to reset thesystem password


Basically, you've wasted your money on a useless and totally unusable unit, sorry.

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 chosen when Garmin Lock was first activated: 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.

You may read advice advising you to use a secret menu to erase all user data. This is done by starting with the nuvi switched off and then pressing and holding the bottom right corner of the screen and then, whilst still pressing the bottom corner, turning the unit on. Please note that although this erases all previous user data including maps, it does not bypass Garmin Lock. There is NO bypass for Garmin Lock except by taking the unit to the owner's security location; it would be a useless theft deterrent otherwise. The entire point of Garmin Lock is to make the unit worthless to thieves, and to those who steal the unit by finding it without handing it to the authorities. It's unfortunate that it also catches out unwitting and innocent buyers of previously-owned Garmins, but that's the lesser of two evils.

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.

Hello please please help me I gave my car a boost and now it says on my deck it needs a 4 digit password but I never set up a password I don't know what to do please help me......my car is in a shop and...


In-car electronics commonly use this sort of password/code protection, to make it more difficult to use or sell a unit that has been stolen from a car. It is triggered when the unit is disconnected from the battery (or, in your case, when the battery goes flat/dead).

According to the Owner's Manual, this system has a user-defined password, and the security is not enabled by default. If you didn't set a password, perhaps the installer did it for you. Check your install receipts/records, or have them check their records.

If you bought the car second-hand, with the unit preinstalled, you may be out of luck unless you can get the code from the previous owner. Since the password isn't pre-defined, the manufacturer really has no way to help you with this. Your only other option is to try the 10,000 possible 4-digit codes until you find the right one.

Pc date keeps resetting to 01/01/2001


I can only presume thsi is an older handhels.
There is a small CMOS battery that has run out.
It may be a Dell only fix.
On a PC it is on the M/board.
Small flat battery like in a watch.
Take it out and get a new one from local watch shop or Jewellers or PC shop.

Date keeps resetting after powerdown


It sounds as if there is a small internal battery - something like a watch battery that should be keeping the clock going - I couldn't confirm this online but this was common in gps systems. It shouldn't be too hard to get to, probably have to take the back off, but it should be easy to replace. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)
