iPhone>Nav V > bluetooth headset?

My new GTL:

I can listen to music on a USB key plugged into the connector on the lower right side compartment, but I don't have any volume control. When I try to adjust the volume with the "wonder wheel" I get a notice "speakers are off" or something like that.

Options I am thinking of:

1) I have a Navigator V. Is it possible to listen to music on an iPhone by linking the phone to the Navigator V and then the Navigator V to a blue tooth head set. Complicated!

2) I have an old iPhone 4s which I would dedicate to a music device in the right side compartment, but would need to buy the BMW iPhone connector. Before I buy the thing, can someone tell me if that will allow me to control the music with the wonder wheel?

Any other suggestions for "simple" way to get music to a Bluetooth headset and have the WonderWheel volume control working?

Thanks in advance.

Re: iPhone>Nav V > bluetooth headset?

If you have a bluetooth headset; i.e., Sena or Cardo, you could listen to your music through the headset and control it through the headset. If you want to listen to it through the GTL speakers just go to the bike's audio menu and turn the speakers on.
