USB Cable for Garmin

by notfastenough   April 15, 2013  

Morning folks. I can't find the USB-to-mini-USB cable for my Garmin Edge 200. They're fairly cheap online, but can anyone tell me if the connection is proprietary or if I can buy any old thing? As ever with cycling kit, you can add a couple of quid for what appears to be the exact same item if you're sufficiently gullible.

It's just a standard mini USB cable.

Any old one should do, I often use the one from my PS3 and that works fine!

Double check you don't have a spare one from like a PS3, camera, Tom Tom or other computer peripheral, I have about 3 of them in addition to my Garmin one.

Yer, use the one from PS3.

They often come as spare cables in phone boxes...

The spare one I found is a branched connection, to both mini-usb and usb, and that didn't work, so that prompted my question - I had previously assumed they were indeed just standard cables.

Anyway, I nicked one off my colleagues desk - seems yesterday's ride in the wind earned 34(!) achievements on Strava, so it was worth scavenging for the cable.

Cheers all.

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.
