Question about GPS
Put it in a warm place for a few days. The IP rating allows immersion up to 1m so it should be OK if it's still working. I wouldn't take it apart as if you don't remake the seals properly you'll be stuffed.

It is natural for marine electronic units to be exposed to excessive moisture on a boat. There are rare cases where somemoisture may appear inside the screen in the form of a light coat of fogging when excessive ambient pressure and humidity are present in the surrounding air. This means there is air present between the LCD screen of your unit and the outer protective lens. This is attributed to the unit being exposed to drastic humidity and temperature changes which is not uncommon. Temperatures can vary 12 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit between day and night.
The unit is outfitted with a Hydrophobic patch that allows moisture vapors to leave the unit once the unit is exposed to sunlight or as the screen warms up. To mitigate the effects of this process, it is helpful to store the unit in a warmer location such as a house or a garage when not in use.
