Identifying Electronic Plug Types

Can any of you electronics experts direct my to a publication or source that lists and shows plug types used for interchanging data in the electronic industry including communication. I have NKE and the plugs look like that they will fit on to Garmin. I would guess that some styles will be proprietary and others will be used by many manufactures.

Seems to be very little standardization in electronics plugs unless you are using some sort of standard protocol like ethernet. Seems like every cable, power or data, for every device I own from cell phones, to GPS to PDAs is different. About the only things I see that seem standard are AC power plugs, ethernet and telephone connectors and that is just in the US.

Jack, your best bet is to try to find out the correct name of the plugs you are looking at, and then search for standards or diagrams on them. There are a gazillion connectors out there, and many vendors intentionally use custom ones in order to force you to use their accessories and their equipment.

Start with the two vendors, ask each for the correct name for their cable endings.
