OEM Stereo to Satnav & Software

I have an 07 Type R GT and want to change the OEM Stereo to the Satnav one. Is this possible?

Also is the software for the satnav shared with other models in the Honda range? I live in Australia and we only get the one spec euro Civic here. I want to make sure before I buy the satnav that i can get local satnav maps/software.

The following photos show the change from & to.

This has come up a few times in the past and the answer is that it is probably possible (although no-one has done it) but it is cost prohibative.

There are so many expensive parts you need to buy that it is probably cheaper to trade the car in for one with sat-nav.

A better option is going for a double din aftermarket unit.
