New to GPS and need info


Hi, just got my first GPS [Garmin c330]. This may be the wrong place to ask this, and if its wrong excuse me.

My question is I regerested my unit 3 days ago. They asked me for serial # and Registration code. I have a long Unlock code [25 numbers and letters] What is this and what do I unlock.

Thanks all Mountainman
