I bought the Garmin at an auction. The charging cord was missing. I tried other cords that I had but none worked. This cord was approved by Garmin and it allowed me to obtain free map updates. The right store for the right cord.
The cable seemed it work on and off. My computer didn’t recognize my gps about half of the time when I tried to update it from Garmin express. the other complaint was that the rubber covering split wherever the cable made an 180 degree bend. When it worked it was fine when it didn’t work it was a pain.
