Anybody know what this space is for?

Does anybody know if there is a specific purpose for the empty space that is between the seat heater buttons?

It's a small space designed to annoy everyone for it's uselessness as far as I can tell.

I like a lot of the suggested uses. I thought that perhaps there might have been an option that I hadn't purchased that went in that location. Oh I forgot there is the Power Slider
I kind of like the garage door opener suggestion, might save some wear and tear on the sun visors.
Thanks everybody !

I've been seeking *a clue* that will fit in that space - so I can hook it up via the USB port in hopes it'll help CONNIE (aka The voice command lady).
