Fitting after market stereo

Hi there. I bought my mini a few weeks ago it's a 53 plate Mini Cooper with factory fitted sat nav and harmon kardon speakers. It has factory fitted stereo. I want to fit a after market stereo I've been told that I need a special harness adaptor because of the satnav unit Does any one know what adaptor I will need as I've never come across this problem in the past. Thanks for your time In advanced.

As I understood it you can't change the stereo as a new one would need an audio input for the satnav that interrupts the source being listened to.

Having taken out my stereo to fit an aux cable you can see the satnav voice input wires.
