Default New (To Me) GX470 Questions

Good Afternoon All -

My favorite vehicle has always been the old '98 Land Cruiser I had a while back. Recently, I traded in a lemon of a car I had for a 2003 Lexus GX470 and love it - even better than the Land cruiser so far!

I have a few of questions, though, please...

Dash Trim
The SUV is overall in excellent condition except that the trim around the navigation screen is heavily scarred. I've looked online for a replacement, but can't find one. A few sites had all of the parts, but didn't know it's part number. Any ideas? See attached pic named "scarred."

Phone / Bluetooth / iPod
What's the best solution for getting a phone / bluetooth and /or iPod integration with the factory system? I bought a MediaBridge for my old car and it worked well plus still have it - but - it is a BMW model and I'd need the Toyota model. Don't want to spend a ton to get a direct factory solution. Ideas?

I'm a tech person and have always had the latest GPS in my vehicle. Needless to say, the navigation in my 2003 is a touch outdated. I know that I can get map upgrades ($169 for software?) but any other suggestions? Any after-market systems anyone has installed which look somewhat like they belong or look OEM?

Thanks guys!
