This article is about how we use your feedback to help develop our products.  Some companies say they listen to our customers.  Here is where we show you, rather than tell you.
 

Article 1
Some customers called us about what they could do with their Garmin GPS, because after breaking the USB connector, and then having it repaired, they decided that the standard connection needed something to help prevent that in the future.  In response, we developed a USB Extension cable that works perfectly with almost every GPS out there, including Garmin, TomTom and Magellan.
Here we have two different models pictured.  A Garmin C550, and a Magellan RoadMate 700.

For this application, we recommend two possible solutions -

Recommendation 1:  Depending on how you mount the device, you'll want the angle facing in a different direction.  I personally like to stick mine to the window.  The cable is installed around the Windshield, there are a couple of ways to do this.  The first, is to angle it "up"  See pictures below.

Recommendation 2: The second way, is to angle it towards the back.  It's also very convenient, and this way I actually liked a little bit better, because it didn't interfere with the volume button, which I like to change pretty frequently; especially if I'm on the phone.  Sometimes I'll be on the phone and my wife thinks another woman is in the car.  Definitely not a good thing!  Here is another picture below.
NOTE: The angle below is the same angle as used with the Garmin GXM 30 Extension Cable,

Article 2
My friend has a Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS, and this cable seems to work for his model as well.  So, here are some different USB Extension configurations that we were able to use with his GPS.

Customer Information:

We had the pleasure of an e-mail from a customer using a Garmin StreetPilot 2730.  He needed to extend the cable that connects his GSM30 XM radio antenna to the GPS.  He used our straight extension cable on his motorcycle, and it worked great!  Link to the 6ft cable he used.
Thanks to Curt from Pewaukee, WI

Another customer of ours has a Garmin Nuvi 360 with traffic receiver.  He had the frustration of the traffic receiver pushing up against the window when he plugged it in.  He decided to try one of our extensions that angled towards the dash to solve the problem.  Sure enough, it took care of it. 
Here is a link to the cable that he used.  We call it a "right angle" extension.
Thanks to Mike from Olathe, KS
