I'm looking to upgrade the Satnav in my Turbo-X.

It has the all-singing all-dancing unit with Bose Centrepoint speakers. Has anyone changed head unit on this system?

Does it need low power inputs to the amp or will the standard 4×#W outputs from an aftermarket head unit work?
Does the centrepoint pseuodo surround feature still work afterwards? Is that activated by the i-Bus? Is the amp itself activated through the i-Bus or will it work with an aftermarket unit?

Has anyone fitted a DAB head unit into a 9-3? Does it need a DAB aerial or is the standard one "man" enough?
Has anyone taken Saab up on their offer of a replacement Kenwood DAB unit with Garmin navigation? Does it integrate with the i-Bus/SID? What's it like to use? Do they run a second aerial?
Has anyone tried an Eonon unit? They have lots of the features I want (DAB, Google Maps navigation, Bluetooth, reversing camera, dash camera integration), but I don't know what the quality is like given that it is a Chinese product at a fraction of the cost of a mainstream brand.
