Smile '06 GC with Chinese Aftermarket SATNAV

Having found to my amazement and cost Honda CRV's will NOT take their OEM Nav units unless previously factory fitted, I proceeded to fit a Chinese (Koolertron) unit to my wife's CRV - Totally AMAZING piece of kit that does everything and more!!
So I thought a-ha, I'll get one for my beaut of an '06 GC, which incidentally has the Jeep OEM SatNav unit (REC/REJ) fitted. However, this is not as easy as I thought and I am hoping someone might have gone through the pain of this already and has an aftermarket system that has interfaces for iPod, Bluetooth, DVD, etc. that ALL come up graphically in the SatNav unit and are controllable [mostly] by the steering wheel controls.
I am finding the CANBUS and the separate [Boston Acoustics] amp on my Jeep are showstoppers.
Please give it all you've got if you have a solution. Many thanks in advance.
Oh, by the way, I'm across the pond (UK based) and this is my 5th GC, the last two, including this one are LPG converted 4.7 V8's and I cannot praise the system enough, far better than the limited distance electric things

Yes, these units are all singing and dancing, far better than the OEM stuff manufacturers palm off to you at high prices.
