If you forgot your PIN, all you have to do is go to the physical location where you originally set your PIN and turn the unit on (make sure antenna is up). It will not ask for a PIN and you will be then able to change the PIN to whatever you like.

Good Luck!

    You got a good point CB. I'm trying to help these people and they can't drive to where they originally set the PIN at and reset the GPS? Or perhaps the unit was stolen and they just want to recover the PIN so they can sell it for $$. Thanks for the inaaprropriate vote MR. GUEST. What goes around comes around.

Help me.......i put a pin number on my garmin nuvi 660..and i cant remember what it is...Is there any way to reset it and start over..

All you have to do it take the gps back to where you were when you entered the pin # . It will then start up and you can either change the pin or just set it to where you won't have one .
This is done so that when IDIOTS steal them , they can't do ANYTHING with them,

To unlock your unit you must go with-in 50 meters of your SECURITY LOCATION , that is the place you first setup your GPS, it could of been your home or office.

Once there the unit will automatically unlock, reset your pin number at that time in the Security menu.

If you cant get to the Security location you must send your unit back to Garmin with the proper receipts of ownership.

I do not remember my code to unlock garmin nuvi

You have to take your unit back to your Safe Location where you set your PIN number (usually your home). Otherwise, you'll have to send it to Garmin with the receipt to have it reset.

Owners can select a pin code to use which locks the unit preventing use by theives. Sat Nav theft is a big market. The unit needs to be sent to Garmin who will verify you are the registered owner and unlock it for you. If you bought at a market is there a good chance it may have been stolen?

Someone changed my pin on nuvi 660

It can't be reset without entering the correct PIN or driving to the security location. Failing this, the unit must be sent back to Garmin.
