Upgrading to uconnect with nav after purchase.

I bought my 2012 Sport 4x4 a few months ago certified used with the remainder of the factory warranties still on the vehicle. It comes with the uconnect system with Bluetooth/sat/standard speaker system. I want to upgrade to a system with navigation. Do I have to go to an aftermarket system vendor or can an authorized dealer install the system. Also will this kind of work affect the warranty in any way? Thanks in advance for the advice.

I think the only way it can effect warranty is if the dealer can prove the failure was directly related to it. Like my amps could cause my alternator to fail, but not a bushing to wear out. I have yet to test this out.

Thank you for the replies, but let's keep it civil. I'm new to the forum and I'm thinking I might be in trouble here already because I have a smart *** sense of humor as well.
