maybe Dachkonsole ?
Explanation:
Schmitt does not offer anything on "overhead system", but does offer an "overhead console". That makes some sense to me - my Jeep has one, with little compartments for the garage door opener, sunglasses, map reading lights, etc., etc.

A search on Dachkonsole did yield quite a few hits; I list only 3:
Trans Sport Specifications
... Mittelkonsole (nicht verschließbar) und Handschuhfach (verschließbar) Dachkonsole vorne mit zwei Leselampen, Außentemperaturanzeige, Kompass, Bordcomputer ...

- Eine Dachkonsole mit RTB, Spotlampen, allen Schaltern etc, zudem ein kompl. neuer ...

Die Dachkonsole bietet neben Reiserechner, Kompass und Außentemperaturanzeige noch zehn weitere Funktionen:

I hope you can determine if this is indeed what's meant by overhead system. Good luck.
