Bluetooth Remote for iPhone Music Control
I did a search and didn't see this talked about here so I thought I might make a post. I have been looking for a way to change tracks while driving without having to pick up the iPhone, unlock it and then manually change the track. I would love to have a bluetooth remote that I could just click to change tracks or do other simple music functions while driving.
I have a 3GS. Is there anything out there like this??

If you already have a Bluetooth accessory that can currently only Play or Pause the music on your iPhone, Bluetooth Helper is an app that will now let you skip tracks.
I just posted an announcement thread about Bluetooth Helper over in the proper section. I'm not trying to spam here, but this seemed directly applicable to frogstofall's question.

Now that we have the AVRCP and other functions...
Why can't we just have a simple bluetooth remote. I've found workout devices which monitor heart rate and have remotes built into them yet i've been unable to find one for under $120. I just want to be able to change tracks while in the car without having to hit a bunch of buttons on my phone while it sits in the magellan dock. Anyone find anything? Whoever comes out with one could make a killing.

you need the apple dock in order for the remote to work. its not bluetooth.
i was quite frustrated that no one had thought of a remote+app yet. so one day when i was randomly perusing youtube, i stumbled upon this:
www dot youtube dot com / watch?v=DYZ0ZMPmI78
this is a god send. This is the only reason why my iphone is jailbroken. its uber convenient.
before i was using flicktunes while i drove. now i have the wiimote app running in the background with backgrounder and i open up flicktunes. (i havent used the stock ipod interface for a while since the font is customizable with flicktunes, hard to read small font on the iphone while driving.) hope this helps

Satechi BT Remote
If you have iOS 5 or more, you can use the Satechi Bluetooth remote control. Setup is like a bluetooth keyboard setup, you can do all the play pause next track functions, and the best thing about it is that it works when iPhone is locked.

I do not have two Bluetooth headphones but i was able to connect both my headset and headphones at the same time. while i have music playing on my headphones i am able to press the call button on my headset and voice control will launch.
