Montana 650 & ScalaRider Voice Prompts

I have been using a Garmin Montana GPS with the topographical maps for both on and off the bike. It is on the AMPS Rugged mount on the bike. I recently installed City Navigator and was hopeing to utilize the voice prompts for navigation on the bike in combination with a Scala Rider headset. The rugged mount has a 3.5mm audio out cable, but when plugged into the AUX IN 3.5 audio plug, the Scala doesn't detect the voice prompts soon enough to make it usable. I contacted Scala, but no fix offered.
I was wondering if using a Bluetooth Stereo Transmitter connected to the Montana's audio line out and then paired to the Scala would allow things to work properly?
Here are a couple Bluetooth Audio Transmitters. Any recommendations?

Thanks

I use the Montana as well. I think that if the Scala is not picking up the audio fast enough, it must be the input sensor that is too slow to react. Going to bluetooth might solve the problem, but might bring on the same problem. And bluetooth itself has a bit of lag in as well, but its in the milliseconds, so it might not be noticeable. I haven't ever used the voice prompts as most of them are no where as good as my phones voice prompts.

This is an interesting question, I have the same problem with no solution either.
