My Garmin nuvi was dropped in water. Is there any way to save

Customer Question

My Garmin nuvi was dropped in water. Is there any way to save it. It just stayed on. I couldn't turn it off then it died. I keep it in a bag of rice overnight but it seems truly dead.

Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this.
There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure.
How deep was the water? What model is it? You gave what looks like a serial number and I can not find it from that.
