There three ways to change a password 1 Know the orig password, enter it, then change it to what you want. That would entail getting a hold of the owner to get it (in your case) and the easiest route to take. 2 Get within 100 feet or so from where the password was inputted. It would ten allow you to change it. 3 Send to Garmin to have it cleared out. If you do this, you might as well have them change the battery (as it may be old and cause problems soon) Good luck.
I would suggest calling the police around the area you bought it from and see if anyone has reported their radio missing in their car. I don't buy things on Ebay "as Discribed", unless it comes from a reliable source (usually someone who has their own ebay store or warehouses). This is probably a radio that the guy broke into and stole out of someones car. Probably tried to use it and found out there was a lock code. If there has been one that has been reported as stolen within that area they will know a key code to turn it back on. Then send the police to pick up the guy and get your money back.
If the Police don't have any reports of stolen cars broken into and radios missing. I would suggest calling KenWood or checking with their site to find a way to reset this code. If you paid a lot for this product I don't see why anyone would be selling it AS IS. It sounds too Fishy for me.
The only ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin are to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
