I was diving off Monterey today, and, at about 60', I found
a Garmin GPS, eTrex Legend Cx, I think. It had a broken
bracket, like maybe some clumsy diver kicked it rolling in.
It had a few drops of water in it. Now, given that this unit
is speced 3' 30 minutes, and it was 60', for long enough
to get some growth, a few drops is darned good. I'd have
expected it to be about 60% full of water.

The owner turned up from a post on our local dive board. It
had been down about three weeks.
