Where did he do it at? All you have to do is go to that location and when you turn it on it won't ask for the pin. Other wise, you need to send it back to Garmin.

    1. Enter the correct PIN.
    2. Go to the secure location where you set the PIN and the unit will not ask you for the PIN.
    3. Send the unit back to Garmin to be unlocked.

    I have had sucess in unlocking Nuvi's but I will only do it for owners who can prove ownership through a valid sales receipt and proof of ownership through registration through Garmin.

How to unlock a garmin nuvi 680 , im looking for a garmin gps and i found one on ebay for a good price but its locked, so i need to know how easy or hard it is to unlock it. Thanks


The only way to get this unlocked is to send it back to garmin with proof of purchase. Reason is that these items are commonly stolen and Garmin does not want to support criminal activity.

Can't unlock my garmin nuvi 680


There is NO master reset code. Whoever told you this was wrong. You have to use your security location to unlock it. Otherwise, you have to send it in to Garmin with the original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer. This is to prevent use of the unit in case of theft.

My son who is 10 locked my gps


There are two options for you:
1) try to make your son remember the security location he chose, a specific geographic spot
2) send it to Garmin service for unlocking

Good luck!

I have a garmin nuvi 680 gps unit lock


Hi,
When you first programmed the GPS you have the opportunity to select a safe location,
if you selected the safe location, go back to that location, and the lock will not be on, it is for the reason of forgetting it, but it will only work in that location ~ ( ie: your old driveway )
If you cannot do this,
it's a Garmin job to unlock it,
There is no other way to unlock it.

Regards
Richard.

PIN CODE


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location where the PIN was set. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
