USB connector cable needed

Postby GeoFlint13 » Tue 2009-08-04, 22:39:29

Does anyone happen to have an extra USB connector cable that fits a Garmin Vista Cx? I packed mine and took it with me to the GeoBash for whatever reason and now I've looked through everything at least twice and can't find it. :oops:
Good Luck & Happy Hunting!

Nope, I need the one that connects the USB computer port to the unit. What you use to upload the coords from GC.

Oops, you're right, that's an Etrex connector!
Is this it?

You are my hero!
Now I'm contemplating whether or not to go after a just-published cache.

Cool beans!
I guess I should have just shot you an e-mail instead of posting a topic.
Thanks DUDE!

That is an universal USB cable. They will work for any GPS Unit that has a matching socket. You can also use a 12v power adaptor for your car with that cable to power your GPS Unit. Image

Check the item, "6) POWERING YOUR PND" in our "Garmin GPSMAP 60Cx/60CSx/76Cx/76CSx info & discussion" thread here in our Tech Forum for more info and a few sources.

Will it work on any USB device that gets it power from a computer, like an mp3 player? Can it be piggy backed with a mini usb cord?

Can I use it to adapt my 7 way trailer plug to a 4 way :roll:

Only if you get a twelve way adaptor and use it in reverse
