Odds are you can slurp the touchscreen activity off the CAN bus. I've heard of touchscreen+A/V adapters for other cars' OEM nav screen (eg Prius), but I can't find any links at the moment.

You could also stick a second touchscreen overlay on the OE screen to connect to your new toys. It'd reduce your brightness a little, but probably not enough to make a big difference.
