I'm sorry I can't give you the exact help I'd like to, as it was nearly 3 years since I converted the cable on mine and it is well buried in the side pillar of the van.
I bought a convertor from CPC (just google it n look at CPC Farnell's website) and it just plugged it in.

I first matched up the connector by googling pictures until I got the names/types for both "sides" of the connector. My TomTom cable was an ordinary USB "A type" connector, but this connected to the van Satnav cable without a hitch, using the adapter.

Be aware the van cable is live all the time, so you need to disconnect/switch off the TomTom if you connect to it (something to do with the tracking system I believe).

Wish I could help more.
Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement…
