    • 1 Enter your four-digit personal identification number that you used to lock your Garmin GPS. When your Garmin GPS is locked, you need to enter the four-digit PIN every time you turn the device on.
    • 2 Drive to the security location that you set when you locked your Garmin GPS. Turn your Garmin GPS on and pull the GPS antenna up so that your GPS is able to acquire the satellite. Once your GPS recognizes that you are at your security location, it will unlock itself.
    • 3 Contact Garmin if you forgot your PIN and security location. You will need to send your GPS to Garmin to have it unlocked. You will also need to send a valid product registration or proof of purchase for Garmin to unlock your GPS. Call Garmin at (800) 800-1020 and get the shipping address and specific instructions from an authorized Garmin representative.

Going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

    I forgot my pin. how can i reset?

    You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin2_bing.gif:

    1 - Enter the correct PIN
    2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
    3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

    Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS.

    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.
