  • You may keep a mini USB stick in your pocket for saving a new document prepared on a laptop or retrieving a file from the storage device to transfer to a PC. Most people keep a USB charger in their cars to charge cell phones while travelling. A USB cable allows owners to download photos from a camera to a computer for further editing. Most mini USBs can connect and disconnect up to 5,000 times before needing replaced.

  • If you can’t live without your cell phone or personal digital assistant (PDA), you’ll be pleased to hear that micro USB connectors will soon make these gadgets even more convenient to use. USB, which stands for Universal Serial Bus, is an external bus, or cable, standard used to connect peripheral devices, like keyboards, to computers. It's an alternative to its common predecessors, serial and parallel standards. After some time, USB technology was enhanced and reduced to a smaller size known as mini USB. The micro USB specification is now scheduled to replace mini USB connectors in many different types of portable devices, including cell phones and PDA's. Standard devices will use Micro-B receptacles, while USB OTG (On-The-Go) devices will use Micro-AB receptacles. Micro-A plugs, Micro-B plugs, and standard cables will also be available.

    When compared to the mini USB, the micro USB offers many advantages. The most obvious benefit to this new technology is its smaller size. As cell phones and PDAs become thinner and lighter, consumers are frequently finding the mini USB connector is simply too large for practical use. The micro USB will allow manufacturers to push the limits of this trend towards sleeker design.

    This High Quality USB 2.0 cable is perfect for use at home or in the office, easily connecting your device to your computer at high speeds. This cable connects your device for data transfer and syncing while simultaneously charging. The best part is that you can still use your device while charging. Works great with cameras, GPS devices, Phones, and other devices that have a MINI USB connection.

  • Pessoal, boa noite.
    Tenho um Foston 700DT que uso em minhas viagens. De uns tempos para cá ele começou a apresentar mau contato na entrada fêmea mini USB impedindo o carregamento. Para que eu conseguisse carregar tinha que enrolar parcialmente o cabo veicular a sua volta pois em certas posições ele voltava a carregar. Entretanto, de tanto tentar achar uma posição possível de carregamento (consequentemente forçando o conector preso na placa) ele se soltou por completo. Tentei comprar um conector fêmea Mini USB com um pequeno cabo e soldar os fios à placa, sem sucesso. Devido a temperatura do ferro de solda os contatos da placa se soltaram. A idéia era tentar fazer a conexão fora do corpo do GPS para não força-lo novamente. Existe alguma coisa que possa fazer para alimenta-lo e, possivelmente, conecta-lo ao meu computador para atualizações? Existe a possibilidade de comprar somente a placa ou terei de amargar na compra de um novo?

    In addition to its smaller size, the micro USB is more durable than the mini USB connector. A micro USB features a stainless-steel shell to allow for over 10,000 insertion cycles, as well as a latching mechanism that provides higher extraction forces without sacrificing the USB’s ease-of-use for synching and charging your portable devices.


MINI vehicles with the optional Bluetooth hands-free kit with USB audio interface, or Bluetooth mobile preparation with USB audio interface, support a broad range of compatible mobile phones.

Using Bluetooth, your MINI instantly connects with your mobile phone. It lets you take calls safely using the hands-free system – operated by the multifunction steering wheel, the MINI Joystick or Voice Control system. And because the contacts on your mobile synchronise with the on-board computer, you can make calls easily. What’s more, depending on your vehicle’s capabilities, you can listen to playlists on your mobile and use a range of office functions too.

– which is an option for all MINI models – also opens the door to a unique form of in-car entertainment. It uses new technology specially developed for the MINI, which integrates the entertainment and online functions of iPhone into the car. Depending on your model, you can either use your standard smartphone cable or the specific Y-cable – just ask your MINI dealer or check on the MINI Connected website. You can find all other information within the MINI Connected section.

Also with the MINI USB port, lots more devices can be supported. Depending on your MINI’s built-in equipment, you could even watch videos on the central display. Full information about USB audio/video topics can be found in the relevant PDF (available to download).
