    MPVII USB-C 90 deg to USB-A cable specifications needed

    I'm trying to locate a USB-C 90 deg to USB-A cable to keep from knocking the cable with my leg datalogging while racing. Does anybody know if there is a certain spec to use? I see USB 2.0 on the label, but many of the cables I'm finding talk about a 56k pull-up resistor for protection on fast charging phones..... not sure if that would affect datalogging and/or loading a tune to the vehicle. I've seen USB 2.0 and 3.1 ?... assuming 3.1 would be better, but the pull-up resistor got me thinking about compatibility. I didn't see a 90 deg option on the HP website.

    Anybody? It would be a great option for HP tuners to offer a choice. I've knocked it off a few times already.

    i used a heavy duty "Mcdodo" cable.
    this cable also has its own power/connection indicator.

    I use a 4' long obd2 90? cable. It's super low profile and then I can stick the MPVI2 wherever it is the most convenient (i.e. right next to my wideband controller so the Pro-Link can be hooked plugged in without extra wires going all over).
