Power Wheels Robo Magellan platform?

My 5 year old friend Adam has promised me his Power Wheels jeep to convert in to a robotics platform - no bribe and not sure how he even got the idea.

I did promise to drive him around in it when I convert it to R/C steering control first.  It has a decent amount of space for equipment without modifying the child compartment.

Lots of possibilities like after converting it to remote control, setting it up for Robo Magellan (although to big for competition) would be fun challenge.  Could then plop in my future kids and drive them around the park based on the GPS;  Technology enabled yes, however will that be wife approved?
