Garmin Nav mod?

So I got this Jeep Wrangler with Nav. Its a Garmin GPS in the Jeep. Controls look familar to the handheld Garmins I use but dumbed down. For example there is no ability to load a .gpx for a route I have created in Basecamp into the Jeep device nor any ability to download historical routes data for analysis with Garmins Basecamp.
Would you happen to have any clues if its possible to put a different software load into the GPS such that I can perform the normal functions Ive enjoyed with the Garmin handhelds? Like loading a .gpx and calling it up in the Jeep device to provide turn by turn and downloading the actual route traveled for evalution with Basecamp?

As far I know, you're pretty much hobbled with the factory GPS system. I think you might be able to load way points but that might be about it.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.
