Zumo 550 plugs

Hi all !! on my zumo 550 there's 2 input jacks for a microphone hookup and headset. plugging the headset into the aux jack on the comm system lets me answer and listen to my phone calls, but I can't transmit. Is there a "Y" connector that takes both sizes and lets me plug in to the aux port? I've been to the local radio shack, best buy, etc. with no luck. any info would be helpful.

Re: Zumo 550 plugs

The Zumo has a 2.5 mm audio in socket and a 3.5 mm audio out. Normally it should work like that .....

... but I've read many experences of Zumo owners that it doesn't (mine doesn't either). In no way I have tried to connect the Zumo to my Baehr my voice was heard by the person on the other side of the line. I suspect a design flaw in the motorcycle mount of the Zumo to be the cause.
