2015 GSA: Plug on left side above air intake

I was installing my intercom this weekend and had the upper left crash bar and left front fairing piece removed. There is a blank plug zip tied in front of the airbox. You can see it just above my J&M intercom box. Anyone know what this plug is for? I have all options including the NAV V. I forgot to test it out with my meter.

I believe that is for the OEM driving lights (as opposed to the already fitted fog lights)
There is space for a switch above the fog light switch on the mirror bracket mount, it requires activation by BMW diagnostics tool.
There is another unused plug on mine, though it's a junior timer plug, just under the right side of the frame behind the fork tube, do you have a similar plug? Don't know what that is for.

Looks like the accessory power plug. Ignition switched and delay off. Usually used by the dealership when installing the BMW nav system. The dealership can sell you a maintenance plug for about $10 (or $40 from Touratech) if you want to use it.

Pull back a bit and take another shot. If you do not have the keyless ride then that is most likely the keyless ride power to the fuel door. I took it off when removing the tank on a GSAw, so I know what it looks like.

I have keyless ride and OEM lights on the crash bars. I didn't know there was another OEM light option. It wasn't an option that could be ordered.

That's on the right side and my factory NAV V mout is connected to it.

Could it be the audio plug from your NAV V mount?

Bingo.
The plug is for the OEM Daytime Running Lamp (DRL) used in other countries.

OK. I thought the Daytime running lights just utilized the led ring differently but sounds like it is an additional light.

Guessing it would be impossible to get this circuit activated for use with my Mondo Moto led lights. It would be nice to have another identical switch and an indicator light on the dash. My VIN likely wouldn't allow the activation with the Fatherland. Even if possible the damn switch is $96

Looked up the daytime running light on the parts fiche. Part no. 63 12 8 523 001 and specifically states not DOT approved and cannot be imported to US.

No, I don't expect it is, the Junior timer connectors are usually used on things like injectors and sensors, I did wonder if it's for the charcoal canister on the Cali bikes, there's a shaped plastic fitting behind the thermostat housing that looks like it should take a cylindrical item that's not there on mine.
There's also another multi way connector between engine and battery box, fed by a bit of corrugated tube, would like to know what that's for too.
Really need a wiring diagram.
I seem to recall the wiring for the Nav V has an extra white connector on it, sort of an extension to replace the original on the bike's loom.
