If you buy a little Bluetooth receiver, about $10 in most electronic stores or online, you can plug that into the jack and synch your phone to it. Works perfectly. This is how I connect my TomTom device to hear directions over the headset.
Thanks For the help.
BrianD, you lost me with the Bluetooth receiver. Let me run this by you. The input device (sold on this forum) plugs into the BT receiver? The receiver then pairs with your phone and thus into your headset. Is this correct?
I looked up BT receivers and got more confused. They are all over the board. If not a violation of this board can you just link a couple examples that would work when used in this manner. Thanks.

Correct. Many people are doing just this now - buying a little receiver like this one:

They plug the GPS Input device into this receiver, then pair this receiver with their phone or GPS or whatever they want to use with it.
