Hello sandupaul.
I've got the GSR 18v 60 FC- same drill but with changeable heads. Same as yours in that it has two LED's but only one lights up when the trigger is pulled. 
It looks to me like the second one is for the anti kickback (or whatever you call it) sensor. If you start your drill in mid air then yank the body quickly 90 degrees one way or the other, you'll notice the drill cut out and the second LED flashes.
Being just the FC model, mine doesn't come witgh the bluetooth module. I'd have to buy it as an upgrade. I'm wondering if there's an option when connected to increase the light output by using the second LED. I doubt it as it seems a dedicated sensor LED but would be interesting to know. 
The light isn't that great on these drills. I have to agree with you there. The light on my GDX impact with the 3 LED's around the chuck is much better.

Thanks for the reply, drill looks well built, better than the old one, just disappointing light, I have the impact with 3 LEDs and that is bright. The Bluetooth module and app gives option to change light from 0 to 99 seconds, adjust kick back sensitivity, see running time of drill and kick back activations counter and I imagine will show other faults
