Default OEM navigation system - 2 questions

I have a 1999 Gs300 (silver) and it doesn't have a OEM navigation system. is it possible to install one in?

My dream is to put in iTunes in the car like the itunes on a prius (link below)

THe guy puts in the mac mini in the dashboard, but I'm hoping that the mini can be put inside the glove compartment. The whole idea is so cool and how the guy can touch the screen is amazing...

Does anyone have information on how to do this on a GS?

Problem is that you are not wired for the factory nav system. It would cost a lot of money to make this work. Good luck.

non that I know of. I think that is why they call them aftermarket. Denso I believe is the manufacturer of the stock units.
