To discourage theft, the Garmin Nuvi 250 personal navigation device includes an antitheft feature: Nuvi 250 users can set the unit to lock. When locked, the device will not work until the proper secret code (or PIN, for personal identification number) is entered. In addition, Nuvi users can set the device to unlock only in a secured location. That secured location must be a place where the Garmin can receive adequate signals. Whenever the device is in the secured location, operating it will not require a PIN.
