What is this it? It's made by LG model number TC96GAJ. I Google it and it didn't come up with anything useful.

The Yellow is XM Satellite Radio I believe. I would have to check. That is a Fakra plug and they are colour coded to different radio signals (frequency/bandwidth). It is the Antenna wire. The XM Module sits right above the Onstar Module.

Despite a lack of a navigation head unit, GPS is an integral part of any cell phone Since the mid 90s. In case of an accident, an OnStar operator would need to know where you are. And even if you don't subscribe to OnStar, it has the ability to call 911. This is true of any cell phone.
