Who knows what this is?

So i was messing around in my trunk and took out the trunk floor cover and in the back, near the seats, is a electronics box. What is it? I tried to take a pic but was having problems.

More importantly, can I take a remote signal from there.

Yes.. a continental sticker. Sounds like it doesn't have the needed remote signal. Odd place to mount the box.

On the right side (close to the seats): Assist telematics module (TCU).
Under the TCU: MULF 6FL iPod/USB adapter module (if so equipped; it is also a Bluetooth module but dormant).
On the left side: Sirius Module (if equipped)

There is no remote signal wire in any of those modules; use pin 13 behind iDrive computer as remote signal.
