Not sure what you're asking about really - do you mean that you did not receive the USB lead with the mini-DIN plug at the end (the cable is actually a USB/RS232 convertor) as shown at the top of the pic?

If the answer is "Yes" then you'll need to get that from the dealer that you bought the GPS mouse off from - since SkyWatcher made sure by twiddling their firmware that 3rd party GPS dongles won't work with their SynScan handcontrollers - I had experienced the "lack" of that cable and bought a similar cable for a similar GPS mouse but the pin-outs were different
