Couple of questions...

1) For the US market, is the "CRUISE" button located at the left-most position among the 3 horizontal buttons as shown in the pic below, or is it at the middle position? I had seen some pics where the button was at the middle (maybe a different model year in the US)?

2) Is the "CRUISE" button its own part, or does the 3-button horizontal group come as a single part integrated together? If it's the former, then possibly can swap in real buttons (from other region models like from Europe/Canada) where the blanks are, to have some custom functionality perhaps.

Thanks!

It's the furthest left on my USDM MY19.

To the rest of your questions, I have no idea. I do know they are blanks for the Sensing suite; if you're interested in real buttons you can use off the shelf buttons from a car equipped with Sensing. It also gives you an additional button on the cross rocker on the right side.

The CRUISE button is in the middle on '17s and '18s in the US.

Someone that has actually done a steering wheel swap should confirm, but I'm pretty sure all the buttons on the right side are part of 1 module. The ones on the left side definitely are and I don't know why it would be any different on the right.

Pictures of the left side module (stolen from here: https://m.facebook.com/groups/646911282367784?view=permalink&id=864571527268424&sfnsn=mo )

Thanks guys and thanks @RedGiant217 - this actually makes sense. I tried calling up Hamburg Honda in Canada last month to try and order some buttons on the steering wheel ahead of my visit to Niagara Falls, but the parts guys seemed to think the whole thing was one giant piece. I initially assumed he was interpreting the parts diagram incorrectly when talking with him over the phone.

Too much work lol... think I'll just leave it USDM stock.
