Check the "Elect Connectors__Ground___Splice.pdf" from this link:

On page 38 you will find two ground points near the location of the head unit ("IE", "IF").
To gain access to them I suggest removing the lower dash trim piece (the one surrounding the cigarette lighter). Just place your fingers to the back of the piece where it attaches to the main dash piece and pry it off. It's only clip-fastened so, minimal force should do it.
