Cool What plugs into this and what does it do?

Hello everyone!

As some of you may recall, I swapped out my basic 130 radio out of my 2012 big horn and noticed that there is only one 20(22?) pin connector hooked up to it. I remember in my 2010 Charger Rallye my RBK (430 mygig) had both 20 pin harnesses used.

My question is what is the other connector used for? I attached a photo for all the visual people on the forumz.

VES is just a guess on my part, quick research brought this up
VES is called a 22 way VES

you do not have GPS on the MYGIG RBZ
you do have a AM/FM antenna plug
you also have a SDARS plug, Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS)

Video Entertainment System (VES®) - Our MyGIG is VES ready. The VES feature will allow for audio & video inputs for multimedia installations. Perfect for your iPOD VIDEO, iPHONE VIDEO, DIGITAL TV RECEIVER, MP3 Player, Laptop, XBOX, PS3, or other Game System to be displayed on the MyGIG screen. The VES feature also allows for audio & video outputs for our HEADREST DVD SYSTEMS or ceiling monitors. (Plug in and create your own custom visual and audio experience.) Our MyGIG's video and audio multimedia output is selectable using radio touch screen buttons. (Dual zone so you can watch or listen to something different than the rear seat screens.) Great for cars without factory rear seat entertainment. Now you can easily add your own.
FYI - VES can only be activated with appropriate VES programming, LOCKPICK COMBO, or our LOCKPICK CHR550 COMBO interfaces. Be sure to check out our DIGITAL TV RECEIVER which allows you to watch live over-the-air digital TV on your MyGIG display.

Look at this site, it is the full installation done in drawings, it shows the sockets at the back of the radio, it shows the RHB radio in the drawings, not the RBZ
the Ram installation is close to the bottom of the drawings

The Charger may have had GPS & Navigation

The 2 plugs are for AM/FM & SDARS
if there were 3 plugs over there on the left
it would also have GPS/Nav

if you look at the last website that i posted, it shows the 3 plug unit

i had added some comments after first posting, so that post has been edited

everything that i have seen, the plug in question is for the VES
some radios have a VES soft key, others have a hard key

My charger did not have nav. it was a straight 430 RBK radio. I was just wondering if the plug in question had to do with extra speakers or factory amp?

also from my understanding that the 2010+ mygigs have two antennas white for fm/am ugly green for sdars/nav. the early 2007-2009 had three, one for fm/am one for sirius and one for nav.
