Did you buy it brand new? If so, then someone must have returned it previously after they set the security pin. The only way to gain access to your GPS is to either go to the saved security location (if one was also set) which after acquiring the satelites will unlock the device and then you can reset the pin, or to call Garmin or go to a Garmin authorized dealer. This security pin is there for a reason.

Ive bought a 250w from ebay, the sat nav has a pin block on it, the seller hasn't got pin, how do i get over this?

Unless the buyer can send you the original receipt you are out of luck. You have to send it to Garmin with the original receipt to get the PIN reset. This is to prevent stolen units from being resold. If you are unable to find the original receipt you may be able to sell parts of the device (screen, chargers, etc) or ask for a refund from the buyer you purchased it from. Hope this helps you out.

How can I unlock my garmin sat nav is not recognizing my pin

you must go with-in 50 meters to the SECURITY LOCATION for the unit to automatically unlock then re-enter new pin number...

Other that that you will need to send in your unit to Garmin with the proper receipt of ownership.... all units are register with garmin for security in case of it being stolen.

Most use there home or office for their security location..... not a good idea tho, all one has to do is press home and your unit will be unlocked for the thief

How do i unlock my garmin nuvi 310 deluxe

If you have a PIN number on your device you will have been asked to set a security location. When you are at your security location or within approximately 50 metres of your security location the device will unlock without the PIN number.

Touchscreen locked @ enter pin. Unit won't shut off unless power

The security pin ID was designed to discourage theft of Garmin GPS products. You can change the security PIN by taking your GPS to the location where you set the PIN and or send it back to Garmin with proof of purchase. I would see if you can update your unit through Garmin web site to see if it helps with the power issue, if not, it probably is the hardware switch and will require you to send it back to Garmin. If you purchased your unit from Costco, simply return it for a new one. Membership privileges. If you purchased it from your local retailer such as Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc. I'm sure they can assist you with getting your issue resolve with Garmin. If you purchased it eBay or an auction site, you maybe out of luck. Good Luck

Garmin 660 sat nav

I would take it back and demand a new one or replacement one. Some how someone must of you your serial number to register there, and now garmin seem to think that yours is stolen. Even though it is not. Garmin will lock the unit if a product gets, stolen and if someone else will try to update.

Owners can select a pin code to use which locks the unit preventing use by theives. Sat Nav theft is a big market. The unit needs to be sent to Garmin who will verify you are the registered owner and unlock it for you. If you bought at a market is there a good chance it may have been stolen?
