You will need to contact garmin to do this. Their website is www.garmin.com when you get to there web page look at the top right hand corner where it says My garmin. From there set up a new account once you do this then contact their technical support either by phone or by email. From there they can instruct you what you need to do to reset the pin number.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please give me a YES on the page you receive my response on. Thank you

I have a Garmin Nuvi 660 that I purchased from a police auction that requires a PIN to work. I don't have the correct paperwork for Garmin tech support to help.


Garmin will only unlock devices if you have proof of purchase.
Think you need to go back police auction and get correct paperwork.

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.

Lost Pin for Garmin Nuvi 360


Unfortunately without the receipt you won't be able to make this work. When a Garmin PIN is set the user is allowed to pick a location that they can go to in case they forget the PIN. If they turn the unit on while at that location the unit will not ask for the PIN. The only other way to reset the PIN is to sent it back to Garmin. If it was bought at a police auction they would have supplied you with some kind of a transaction record. I would call Garmin Support at 800-800-1020 M-T 8AM-6PM Fri 8AM-5PM Central time. Explain the situation to them and they might be willing to fix it for you. Normally if they are sent a GPS that doesn't come with a receipt they will contact the Police in the registered user's area. Good luck.

I cannot unlock garmin nuvi 205


Ask the person from whom you purchased this unit (it does NOT come locked from the factory) what the PIN is. If he/she will not provide the code, ask for a refund. You will NOT be able to use this unit without the correct PIN.

Enter your PIN number, or take the unit back to the "Security Location" and it will unlock by itself. You can then enter a new PIN unlock code.
