Proper USB 2.0 cable to connect a EOS 90D to a Canon GP-E2

Will a GP-E2 with its mini-B port connect to my 90D  with a micro-B port?

 

The GP-E2 works great sitting on the 90D's hot shoe but can't use the flash. (The cables that came with the GPS are useless connecting  to a my 90D.)

 

Thanks, Dave.

From the manual for the 90D:

All the listed items have been met. The GPS's firmware is 2.0.2.

Bullet 3 seems to say no. If you have the camera I guess you can try it.

 

Or give Canon a call at 1-800-OK-CANON.

You could be right about button 3. Dealing with Canon is a wast of time -- I've tried.

 

If my proposed cable doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I'd like to try Can you or anyone in the group confirm the port types are correct?

 

Thanks, again.

 

This from the specs for the 90D. The "For GP-E2 Connection" implies (or did I infer) I could do what I want to do?

I just saw the same thing and was going to post it. Definitely a conflict between the two statements.
