Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Handheld GPS Receiver
I dropped my 760 nuvi into the dog's water bowl... (by accident of course)...
It was working but would shut off and eventually would not start.
Using the correct screwdriver with the star head, I removed the two tiny screws at he bottom back of the unit. Gently from the bottom, pry off the back.
Be careful as the battery pack and the speaker wire are still connected.
Using a hairdryer on Medium heat and high fan, air out the unit until all water/condensation is gone.
Before putting back together.... check that the unit works, and charges by connecting thusb to a computer.....
Once content it is working, snap the cover back together and screw in the 2 screws.

Has it stopped working? Put it into a ziplock bag with some silica gel sacks or even some rice. Leave it for a few days. See if that wicks the moisture out. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to send it in for servicing. Did it get wet, as in rain, or did it get dropped into water? If water got into the USB port, that just might pooch the unit's circuitry.
