Universal android 4.2 headunit install help

Hi guys,

I'm sure this has been asked before but i couldn't find what i need and hope someone here can help.

I own a Australian 2012 jeep compass 4x4 sport model. It comes with u connect and a REL head unit and Im looking at buying this head unit - IN Dash Pure Android 4 2 CAR Stereo Unit 3G Wifi GPS SAT NAV DVD Bluetooth USB | eBay

Ive spoken with the seller and his not really been much help.

Can someone please point me in the right direction of how i can get this to work with my jeep?
I know im going to need a dash kit, which is fine, i know what i need.

Ive installed plenty of head units in other older vehicles, but Ive never dealt with a Jeep with can bus. As per the link. this unit only comes with a ISO plug, no can bus.

This is where im stuck...

i know im going to need an adapter cable to make this all work, but i have no idea what cable i need...
Ive searched, but its just making me more confused with all the part numbers etc, plus, ad the fact its an android unit, will this make a difference aswell?

Would really appreciate if someone could tell me what adaptor i need to make this all work

You will need the dash kit, wire harness, and antenna adapter to install it. You can pick those up from any local car stereo shop. You will cut the 2x 8 pin plug harnesses and install the Chrysler harness instead
