Mini or micro USB cable
Most Garmin devices require the mini USB cable connector, as pictured on the right in the photo. However a handful of Garmin systems require the micro USB connector pictured on the left in the photo.
The other end of both cables will always be a standard size USB cable to connect into your PC/Mac/Laptop.
Before buying we recommend that you check which USB cable you require for your Garmin. If you look closely on the underneath, back or sides of your Garmin unit you will find the port which the mini or micro USB cable plugs into.
