Unlock garmin 1390t gps forgot 4 diget pin


    • 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.

When I plug the gps into the charger a computer picture shows up and I can't get it on any other screen. What's the matter?


Did you recently purchase that charger?

This usually happens when the charger is not compatible with the unit. or you could be using a non-Garmin charger. There are some "store-brand" chargers that work well, and some do not. Store brand Charger are made to be Universal. To fit multiple devices and maximize profits. You want a Garmin Specific Charger, and here is the logic why...

The reason behind it:

1. The Garmin USB Cable that you connect to your computer has a special 4-pin configuration telling the GPS that is is connected to a computer. This is the configuration most "generic" chargers use to maximize device compatibility.

2. The Garmin Car Charger has a different pin configuration with 2 less pins, giving it only positive ( + ) and Negative ( - ) to charge the GPS.

When the GPS receives the 4 pin, which is also found in a "Motorola" Cell phone charger, it will automatically sense that it is connected to a computer.

Long winded, but I wanted to explain why. Simple fix, Just go get a new charger and make sure it's Garmin compatible.

MAP 76 locks up in normal mode after acquiring and starting to track, three to four minutes. Screen goes blank except for vertical stripe, no keys work. Have to pull batteries to turn off. Unit works...


I had the same problem (blank screen, vertical line). After speaking with Garmin, I was told to turn off the WAAS function. Disable it for now, because the WAAS signal, coming from the satellite, has changed, and Garmin has not yet published a remedy to correct this problem. A fix should be out in a software update, sometime in the future, hopefully. Just so you'll know, I also did a software update, to the latest version 4.0. The unit performs perfectly now, however, the accuracy is not quite as good, due to the lack of WAAS.

What you said does make sense. When you have your unit in simulator mode, the GPS receiver is turned off, so it is not receiving signals from the satellites. The strange signal from the WAAS satellite must be what has been messing things up. Good Luck!

Internal wiring


Hi - I have a Garmin GPS 126 in bits on my desk ready for a new cable as the socket in the back has some broken pins.

Also refer to the Garmin GPS to PC Wiring Instructions here on the Garmin site: http://www8.garmin.com/support/faqs/faq.jsp?faq=68

The internal 8 pin white connector on to the back of the circuit board is as follows:

1 Red Positive
2 Black Negative
3 Yellow Data Out
4 Green Data In
5 not used
6 not used
7 White Alarm

All the best, Tony at KiwiGPS, New Zealand
