    Default What USB Cable?

    I want a micro usb to normal to connect a dahscam to PC.

    I can do it with the card but I'd like a cable.

    Trouble is....which micro USB? And preferably not expensive...

    You could try the likes of JB Hifi in Bayview Mall. Have a look at the type of cable you want. Check their web site too.

    any, as long at the plug is the right one (as there mini usb as well) then any cable will do. If you can be bothered waiting you can order off trademe/aliexpress and probably get a bunch for $2-4 each.

    that one on the bottom could be usb-c? But I'm picking charging is the other one, the mini usb.

    Do you have the dashcam? What is written by that other plug......oh that might be mini-hdmi for playback on a telly.

    The top port is a mini, Do a search for Digitus USB 2.0 Type A (M) to mini USB Type B (M) 1.8m Cable, under $6. Tried to throw one through the screen at ya but bounced off LOL (only kidding didn't)

    The Gold one could also be a mini, same as my Phone.
