Suggest you search this forum and MB World using the terms "UHI" "MHI" and "MikBox." This has been a very active topic. For a MikBox installation, see http://www.benzworld.org/publications/pub.asp?id=317 which also has links to other very informative sites.
Another product that is due for release this summer is the Argos Bluetooth integration for Mercedes. I don't know if it will be available for a G-class, and I don't know of anyone yet who has one installed in a Mercedes (since it hasn't been released).
Thanks to tcflya for pointing out the following posts:
The Argos Mercedes Bluetooth product is planned to be compatible with the following Mercedes Benz vehicles:
S Class: 2000-2003
SL Class: 1999-2004 E Class: 199-2002
C Class: 1999-2004
CL Class: 2000-2003
CLK Class: 2000-2004
M Class: mid 1999 â€“ current production
SLK Class: start of production - current production
