Where can I buy a mini USB cable that will connect my

Customer Question

Where can I buy a mini USB cable that will connect my Magellan Roadmate 9212T-LM to my laptop computer so I can update the infomation. I bought my gps at Walmart and they don't have the cable, just the 2-port car charger for GPS. I want to get it right away before we go on a trip.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the brand and model of the GPS?
Customer: Also, I am unsure what the ends of the cable should look like. One is the regular USB, but there isn't a USB slot for connection on the GPS. Is it a micro USB cord?
JA: What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Magellan Roadmate 9212T-LM.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I don't really know what I'm looking for. I just want a cable that will connect my two devices, my laptop computer and the Magellan Roadmate GPS so I can update information. You are the only person I have talked to so far. Help, please.
JA: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, I don't think so.

The usb port is on the lower left corner (left side/edge, toward the bottom) of the gps.

It uses a standard micro usb cable, so any generic usb cable (the type used for most non apple cell phones) will work also:
