These features are available in many, many aftermarket radios.
But, the Commander's (and all Chrysler Vehicles) do NOT directly fit Double DIN radio's, you have to chop up the dash to get them to fit. So this offering that looks like it is direct swap with no modification is very appealing.
As far as smartphones. I got an aftermarket radio that is suppose to connect to several smartphones and have all sorts of features, including porting the NAV over to show on the screen. These things are NOT ready for prime time, I was sorely disappointed with it and when I upgraded phones, the radio doesn't support my new phone. Aftermarket and OEM radios are NOT getting firmware updates to update and support the latest consumer electronics, so what ever you buy the features will probably go unused shortly.
What does work well with all the aftermarket radios and I'm sure these units you're talking about as well, is the Bluetooth.
The latest Bluetooth standards are great, and both radios and smartphones support it well and backwards and forwards compatibility. So the streaming and controlling audio features of the phone, Pandora, etc, the hands free all work great, and will work just as well with other phones or upgraded phones, including iPhone.
In fact my teenage son drives around our old mini-van, I got him a $100 single DIN JVC head unit, that has the latest Bluetooth standard. He loves it, he just manages his music from his phone, hops in the car and starts playing his music over the speakers from his phone.
