Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

get a new unit... the street pilot series is outdated and it's a miracle that your unit is still working at all. Celebrate that you have gotten 10+ years out of that unit and go get your self a Dezl or RV unit

Hi Paulette,Many Garmin GPS units that only get powered by the car charger / cradle suffer from this problem eventually. The fix is pretty simple. You didn't include your model GPS, but I think this may help just the same:Connect the GPS to a computer's USB port, or AC adapter that has a USB port and leave on for 8 hours (or over night). Disconnect and and turn on again. If you have a Nuvi that has a spring return sliding power switch - slide and hold it in the on position for 15 seconds before letting go. It should power up just fine. You do not need to hold the power switch like this again to turn it on.If the GPS starts acting like this again, simply repeat the process as often as needed. Eventually, the internal battery will no longer be able to accept a charge and will require replacement.Good luck!

This is usually done through a computer or laptop. Create an account on the Garmin website. Connect your Sat-Nav to the computer. You should be able to download the updates through your account.
