Garmin Lock works...sometimes


On a Nuvi 855, I've noticed that the Garmin Lock feature does not request a PIN about once out of every 30 times I turn on the unit. This is not due to being close to the pre-defined security location.

Has anyone else experienced this or know why?


I'm pretty sure I've seen this with my 855 on occasion, too. I'm clueless as to the why of it, assuming it has happened to me.

For what it's worth, I generally remove my 855 battery when I'm done using it so for me, I usually do a full boot with each battery reinsertion.

I can't remember if my password-bypass occurrences have been with a cold boot after replacing the battery or warm boot by just a flick of the power switch.

I feel better knowing now that others see this.

Just to let you know

That's never happened on neither of my 255W units.
