What for is the little blue light next to the map lights on the CX-7 & CX-9? I tried looking it up on the manuals but couldn't find any reference to it.

It is used to illuminate the area around the gear shifter.
In most BMW, it is an orange LED. Same location.

Thanks. I don't think it illuminates the area all that well. I used to have a BMW 740i and it had the two orange LED lights, but these really lit up good. By the way, I just did the math on MPGs for my CX-7 & CX-9, and I only got 17.5 MPG on the CX-7 and 15 MPG on the CX-9 for this past week (Sunday to Sunday top-off fill-ups). It sucks but we also had tons of snow and very slow traffic in Chicago this week. My CX-9 is using as much gas as the 2002 Dodge Durango SLT+ 4x4 (4.7L, V8 Hemi) that I traded in for it. My 740i (4.4L, V8) used to give me better gas mileage than the CX-7 is giving me. Oh well, such is life.

Is actually a Mazda mind control light.
Along with the blue illumination, it transmits "zoom zoom" in some psychic manner.
At least, that's what I tell my kids .
