Default Programming cable

Can you get a longer programing cable for the tx-1 and tx-2? Will the android cable for a phone work?

Thanks for the help and time.

Most phone cables are micro-USB. You need a mini-USB.


There's a number of them, in lengths to 15 feet and over, on Amazon.

Default Longer cable

Longer cables can have more resistance due to inadequate wire gauge, and a cheap one may not work well, so don't jump on the bargain price one. You could also use a standard USB A extension cable

I purchased this 6-foot Amazon Basics cable (USB 2.0 Cable - A-Male to Mini-B) to program my TRX-2 and it works fine and the price is only $5.49: https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-.../dp/B00NH11N5A
