Add Garmin Quest GPS to Factory Radio?

I have a 2001 X5 4.4i without factory NAV. I recently purchased a Garmin Quest 2 GPS which comes with suction cup mount for the windshield that has a built in speaker at the connection to the cigarette lighter (for power). I found that the best place to mount the unit is at the top of the windshield next to the rear view mirror. However, the main drawback is that the power cord hangs down to the cigarette lighter. The other issue is that the voice command directions sound terrible thru the small speaker at the cigarette lighter connection. Does anyone know if I can re-wire the power and speaker to connect to the radio so that the voice commands will come from the factory speakers and the radio will mute (as I believe is the case with the factory NAV unit?)

Thanks in advance for your help...
