96 S500 - Navigation, MP3, bluetooth phone all-in-one?

So I'm in a conundrum. I've seen the Ipod article with the plug substitution for the CD Player - seems like a great idea if it can be operated by the existing radio/CD head. I've also seen the bluetooth article using the old phone location.

HOWEVER, it seems that Becker has some solutions listed on their web site that combines all this stuff plus navigation into a single w140 sized head unit but is it only available for the European market ... does anyone know if they make these for the US market? Euro maps won't help me in Boston! ;)


Also, the fact that they combine all this in a package that looks like it could have come in the original W140 / C140 (not the typical aftermarket silly florescent blinky flashy interfaces) makes it into a REALLY attractive solution. They really are a dream come true!

So has anyone installed one of these in a 140? This seems like such a perfect solution for those of us who love the 140 quality but want the newer convenience features.
