I had an old grey beard from NASA tell me years ago he didn't believe in coincidence when I proposed two events were not connected.

It was raining and GPS went TU, there probably is a connection. Obvious question is; where could water have gone where it didn't belong?

Could it have shorted the 5V in to a data line out in the USB plug? I would think that would have only taken out USB driver, not whole unit.

Could it have gotten in the series regulator in the cable? 12V into a 5V input makes toast quick.
