help identify this rear USB cable in my e93?

hi all,

In my ski pass i have a USB cable (the end you would normally plug into a PC) hanging out the side of the ski pass through a small hole

Any ideas what it might be? Im guessing its not a BMW cable? I have a parrot on the dash but its usb cable is in the glovebox.


Thanks

wonder if its hardwired into something that has a data channel. Isnt hte 232 chip the same that is required for coding? Download the coding programs, install the drivers and see if it reads the cars modules?
