Mystery plug connection -

Please see attached photo of a open plug connection found on my 'New to me" 2007 K1200S.

I have been unsuccessful in identifying what might have been connected, and likely wont be travelling to the dealer, some 60 miles away, for months to come.

Also not finding a similar plug on my 2009 K1200LT

Agreed, that appears to be the GPS accessory plug. BMW sells a plug in dongle you can then wire into any accessory so long as it doesn't exceed the amp rating for the circuit (3amps or 5 amps??). Anyway, some people use it to wire up a USB charger for a phone, etc. If you're not going to use it, I'd recommend taping it up. The bike comes from the factory with a cap to seal the plug. If you're missing that cap it's likely someone had something plugged in at some point in the past.
