what bluetooth GPS to pair with iPhone?

I like to listen to music while riding my KLR 650 with my iphone as a source and great sounding Etymotic earbuds. I would like to get an 'external' GPS with bluetooth to get get voice directions over the headphones.

I don't want to use the iphone as my GPS.

Please help if this can even be done?

TIA,
Simba

Talking GPS for iPhone

Simba,

OK, I don't own either.. but I've been researching these things for a while because I am using my iPhone 5 for navigation. Presently I'm happy with the i5 in conjunction with specific apps -

Scenic Map, Motion X GPS, Route Buddy/Atlas

If I want some redundancy or feel like the built in GPS chip is not cutting it I'll add one of the afore mentioned units. I've spent some time off road with my i5 and with preloaded maps (Scenic Map) have been well covered but that's me wanting to know where I am - not using turn by turn voice instructions. It's still a work in progress. Good luck!

- Joe
