Hello,

Download and run the Garmin WebUpdater to install or reinstall the latest software (firmware). This will usually fix most issues.

Unit locks up after start up and has to be re-set - it doaes this every day when I set off.


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I recieve a garmin as a gift @ it now has a code lock on it how can i unlock my garmin 260


The Garmin Lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your nuvi. Each time you turn the on the nuvi, you would have to enter the PIN or drive to the security location. (where it was orig programmed)
To set the Garmin Lock on the device:
  1. From the Main Menu, touch the Wrench (Tools) icon.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Security. (you may need to touch the down arrow button)
  4. Touch the tab labeled Off next to the Garmin Lock heading.
  5. The nuvi will prompt you to enter a four-digit pin number.
  6. Enter a four-digit code as your pin.
  7. Re-enter the four-digit pin.
  8. Go to a 'Security Location' and let the unit acquire satellites (the security location will unlock the unit if the pin is forgotten or lost).
  9. Set the 'Security Location' by touching Set.
The Garmin Lock has now been turned On.

I want to update my Garmin Streetpilot c340


Before you begin, you must have a compatible map set CD / DVD or, a preloaded map set on memory card by Garmin. Many retailers sell these map sets, but you may end up with an older or non-compatible set instead. There are options for *lifetime* downloadable map set updates directly from Garmin for less than $150. These will allow downloading updates (maps will be upgraded up to 4x per year according to Garmin). Speak with a Garmin Customer Service rep to help decide which would be the best update path for you.

Unlock code for my garmin nuvi 350


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.

You cannot unlock (or "reset") a locked unit without the PIN number or going to the location where the PIN was set. The only other option you have is to send the unit to Garmin.
