Customer Question
Where can I buy...

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.

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the brand and model of the GPS?

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?

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

Magellan Roadmate 9212T-LM.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

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.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

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: http://amzn.to/2wVtXdb
