This is the cable used to update/upgrade software and maps for various Garmin GPS's. The Garmin GPSMAP 496 would use this cable.

Yes, these can be used on Macs.

Q: Will this cable also charge the battery?

Yes, this is a Garmin OE product manufactured by Garmin.

Q: The Garmin GPSmap 496 requires a USB 2.0 to update software and data. My computer has a 3.0 USB. Does this cable convert 3.0 to 2.0.
