Hello,

 

I have a picture of a dashcam. Looking at the port to the LEFT. It is for the rear hd camera. I am trying to figure out if it is a usb port or something else.

Anyone can confirm for me it is USB?

Also what is that round port on bottom picture?

It's not usb. Looks similar to thunderbolt but I imagine it's a proprietary connector. That second picture looks like a DIN plug of some sort, although it doesn't match spec for any I know. Probably a proprietary connector again.

 

I imagine you could find out if you knew the manufacturer of the cam, but without that it's hard to say.

I have contacted manufacturer no reply yet.

 

Dashcam is Chupad X16, I think it's the same port used for camera on Mini 0906 too. Apparently is 8 pin.

 

Your din plug keywork gave me some hits though.

 

Found out the circular plug is a slim mini din or slim din connector. Only place I found who sells is manufacturers though or a place on amazon who doesn't sell internationally.

 

Thanks for the help :)

I did remember seeing on amazon with seller saying it is a usb port for either this camera or another and then I know is 8 pin so I did a google search.

Found out it is a UC E6 Port or otherwise known as 8 pin Mini or Micro USB Type B port.

 

8 pin uc-e6 like connector

 

Seems to be used on a lot of digital cameras and stuff.

 

I found a lot of these from male to regular usb male.

 

I need a female uc e6 to either male uc e6 or regular usb. I don't suppose anyone knows where to find one which ships to Australia?

If you're in Australia, your best luck might be from MWave.

 

Luckily enough, I believe I've found what you're looking for.

I think one of the common names is Mini B 8 pin.

 

That's a Mini B 5 pin as opposed to the Mini B 8 pin.

 

Comparisons:

 

 

Mini B 5 Pin

Mini B 8 Pin

 

I can find many of these leads but I need female 8 pin to male 8 pin.

The only female 8 pin i can find is ones where I have to solder wires onto the plug myself to make a lead.

 

Very hard to find :(

Hallo, Silhorn.

Your own research has probably led you to this same conclusion, but to clarify, it is a USB port (although proprietary, even device-type specific; in this case, widely-used in the digital camera industry).
 

My guess would be that a 'cartel' of camera manufacturers got together at some point, and agreed to make a non-standard plug layout 'standard' across the industry.....in order to keep the purchase and addition of camera peripherals 'in-house'.

http://pinoutguide.com/DigitalCameras/micro_usb_8pin_camera_pinout.shtml

It appears that cables for these things are available for purchase, certainly, but they're awkward to track down.....and, as you've also discovered, not all sellers ship to all locations.

Just my tuppence-worth.


Mike. :wink:
