How can I upload Maps to my Garmin Nuvi 660 that were not maps by Garmin or an affiliated companies. After all, I own the unit and I paid for it. I should have the right to use it with any maps that I choose. Am I right?

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.

Garmin lock is a theft-deterrent system that locks your Nuvi. each time you turn on the Nuvi, enter the pin or drive to the security location to unlock.

Touch tools>settings>security
touch the button below Garmin lock
Enter a 4 digit pin and drive to security location

Note if you forget your PIN and your security location, you must send your Nuvi to Garmin to unlock it. You must also send a valid product registration or proof of purchase.

    My garmin nuvi is lock how do i unlock it do you know

    According to Garmin, if you lock it and forget the unlock code, the only way to get it unlocked is to send it to Garmin along with your receipt and proof of registration. One more reason to register your Garmin when you get it.

    I have a garmin nuvi 680 gps unit lock

    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.
