Morning folks,

My 2 year old daughter has hidden my Garmin charger. I've spent 2 days looking for it to no avail!

Does anyone have an old one spare they no longer want or use?

Would be much appreciated!

What model is it? Most Garmins just take a standard micro-USB cable (mini-USB on some older models), doesn't need to be Garmin-branded.

It's an 810, its not micro USB, looks like an old camera connection from what I remember. Like micro USB but a tiny but deeper.

I'll google mini-usb, not sure what that is... if it's the same then thanks in advance.

It is a micro USB Paul. You may wish to look for a data cable rather than just a charging cable as I have had a charging cable which would not upload / download data!

Oh ok, thought micro USB was what my phone has. It's not the same as that one.

Will google the types. Although, I've lost the charging base (or it's been hidden somewhere... prob turn up in the cornflakes or something). anyway... so was hoping to get a full replacement of base and cable.

There is mini and micro, but Garmin is definitely just a normal MINI USB cable (see photo), which you can plug into any charger.

Cheers Paul. Ordered a cable from eBay

Some garmins are mini, and some are micro.
I know this because my brother forgot his lead last week, I gave him mine to use and it didn't fit. I found a generic lead in my drawer for him and it worked fine.

Found the charger. It was mini USB based on above picture for anyone interested (810).
