No idea what section I should be posting this in.    But I have or had a cable that opened up a USB port on my car radio but lost the cable. I was going to just make one but wanted to ask around before I did that. Really thought it was more common or I would have made very sure not to lose it.  I believe its a mini din 8pin.

I would try the car radio manufacturer for a replacement cable. I don't think you're likely to find one elsewhere (& if you did would the internal wiring be correct?).

First of all - welcome to BC !

 

An alternative, and possibly easier, source would be your local dealer for your car.

aftermarket replacement stereo, e7026navi.  The place I bought it from years ago is now gone.   FlyAudio I think was the supplier, but I have had zero luck getting through to anyone there.

They may have used something like a barcode reader cable, but as said who can tell if the pinout is correct? e.g.
