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.

Have garmin nuvi 265w forgot security code

Have you ever had it Registered?
If not you have to before any maps are loaded...... with the unit off connect the GPS to your computer using the USB connector cable...(its the same usb connection a camera uses connecting to a computer)..
Once your computer detects your GPS it will say new hardware found
go to and Register your unit
Garmin will also detect your model number and let you unlock the maps and firmware
FYI where you set up the GPS will be your SECURITY LOCATION if you ever lose your pin number you would have to travel back to the security location to unlock your unit

I recenty received a used Garmin Nuvi and I can't access the previous owners pin number /security location number. Is there anyway to over-ride the existing pin number and create my own?

No. This is a security feature, and it would be useless if there were a work-around. There are only three options to unlock a PIN locked Garmin, and you already said you can't do two of them. The third would be to send the unit back to Garmin, but depending on HOW you obtained the unit, they may not help you.

I'dont know wich es the secret number (PIN) can you help me ?? is One GARMIN NUVI 205 ... THANKS

The PIN is set by the owner of the unit. The place at which the PIN is first entered is the Security Location. If you do not have the PIN, you must go to the Security Location for the unit to unlock. You can then change the PIN or remove it. Your only other option for unlocking the unit would be to return it to Garmin with proof of purchase.

My wife entered the wrong pin number by accident on the nuvi 750. She tried turning the unit off and then back on to reset back to "enter pin" code mode however she gets the response "you must return to...

If you turn the unit off, wait about ten seconds and turn it back on, yes, it should go back to the "Enter PIN" screen. If, however, you turn it off then immediately turn it back on it will continue to tell you to return to the security location.

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 260 on ebay and it is locked. How do I unlock it. It does nothing but ask for the pin?

I would do one of two things: ask the seller for the PIN or return it and get your money back. You cannot get past the PIN number without entering the correct PIN, taking the unit back to the location at which the PIN was entered or returning the unit to Garmin. However, Garmin requires proof of purchase in order to send the unit back to you.

No car radio / stereo for use with Garmin nuvi 750 GPS

Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).
