There's a reset button under the trim ring around the face of the unit. Gently pry off the trim ring by hooking a fingernail in the little groove under the logo, then press the reset button. Page 20 of your manual says if you have to reset often, then you might need to update the unit's software. But I wouldn't recommend it if this is the first time.

I purchased a used locked Garmin c530 gps and I don't have the pin # to unlock it.Is there a way to unlock it.Thankyou


you will have to ask the previous owner for the lock code. if he doesn't know it, get you money back from him. the only way to unlock a garmin is to know which location the code was first programmed in or by sending it back to garmin with proof of purchase. this is an anti-theft feature.

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.

No, it is not possible to configure the unit to do something it is not designed to do. The text to speech feature utilizes a computerized voice with pre-programmed street names. Your unit does not contain this programming.

Reset my garmin streetpilot c530gps


There is no way to just "reset" the PIN. If you don't have the correct PIN, you must take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.
