Victron MPPT 150 I35

I have a 2021 27FC with factory solar. It has a Victron MPPT 150 35 Bluesolar Controller installed. I started to install the Victron VE Direct Bluetooth Smart Dongle and found a cable already occupying the plug where the dongle inserts into the MPPT controller. It is factory labeled Solar CTL. What is its purpose? Can it be removed for the Smart Dongle?

I did plug in the MPPT Controller and updated firmware and have reconnected the Solar CTL cable.

Do you already have a Victron display somewhere that's indicating what the solar controller is doing? Another thread states that the display plugs in the same place as the BT dongle does. Info about the Victron BMV-700 monitor suggests that the BT dongle can plug into the monitor as well, though I don't know if you'd get the same info as from the charge controller directly.
