only 4 pins connected – USB to Mini USB 5-Pin Male Adapter Cables (2-Pack/60cm-Length) Reviews

Two cables for this price is a bargain. The cable worked as both charge and data transfer cable for my MIO PNA device.
the cable has no outer shielding and the inner cables are quite brittle, so don't be surprised if they cable stops working after a while. I bought these because the title suggested a 5 pin connection, but after opening one cable it became quickly clear that only 4 wires are connected and pin 4 of the 5-pin USB mini connector isn't connected.
I managed to modify the cable for my purpose, so if you're not afraid for a little soldering this is a good buy.
Quality could be better, but for this price what can you expect?
