Congratulations on the purchase of the Altima Hybrid! It's a great car.
Your dealer is misinformed. The stereo system is a completely different electrical system than the hybrid drive system. Also, it *IS* the responsibility of the dealership to prove that the stereo did any kind of damage to your car. Your car is equipped with a fuse to protect the accessory electrical system in the event of overload.
With the Convenience Package, you don't have have the Bose head unit, amp or speakers. I don't believe you can install the navigation head unit in a non-Bose car. (I might be wrong on that. I have been searching, but haven't come up with a thread on it.) Without the Bose amp, you can actually get a cheaper harness that will allow you to adapt the head unit of your choosing to the factory connector. This keeps the install clean.
