Enabling Screen Lock

For anti-theft protection and to prevent unauthorized use of your device, you can enable the Screen Lock feature which requires a PIN (Personal Identification Number). When enabled, you must enter the PIN to unlock the screen each time you turn on the device. You can set up recovery questions and answers as prompts in case you forget the PIN.

If you enable the Screen Lock feature, Garmin® Support cannot retrieve the PIN or access your device. It is your responsibility to provide the PIN to anyone authorized to use the vessel.

  1. Select Settings menu > System > Sounds and Display > Screen Lock > Setup.
  2. Enter a memorable numeric PIN of 6 digits.
  3. Reenter the PIN to verify.
  4. When prompted, choose and answer three PIN recovery questions.

You can Disable or Reset the PIN and recovery questions as needed.
