Navigation in sunglasses bin/ashtray?

I looking around the other night and i came across what was claimed to be an OEM part that goes in place of the sunglass bin, and the ashtray. It was just a flat peice, and they had cut it to where their 7" navigation would fit behind it seemlessly. I have looked and looked and looked, google, this form, yahoo, and I can not find it..
Now the question here is where would I find the part to buy? And OEM isn't a big deal to me, I'm just looking for a way to put a CarPC in cheaply, I already have the computer and I just need this peice and a 7" touch screen.

I'm aware of that. Installation time is no issue, so I could figure something out for that.
