E320 1997 owner wishes to update from CD

On third MB. First 2, an 83 and an 84 300 SD. Also an 86 190E. The 84 300 SD is in process of rebuilding the engine. The rest is fine at a little over 300KMI. Little wear and putting in new valves and pistons since the cam chain stretched too far. OUCH!!!

I Have purchased an 1997 E320 in pretty good shape with 100KMI on it. I noticed that it has an Ethernet port inside the lower armrest compartment. A module that holds the CD's in the trunk is missing.

What I wish to do is remove the CD changer (make someone a bargain), and install a custom PC in the rear module or the armrest and use the place occupied by the CD control for a LCD touchscreen to display GPS and a rear view camera at trunk level to cover small pedestrians and to help see smaller cars hiding under the trunk lid.

Anybody have any ideas?

BTW the computer is currently in my toolbox.
