Default Looking for an wired or bluetooth remote

I always plug my phone into my 3.5mm aux jack on my car stereo to listen to pandora. And it would be nice to have a 3 button inline remote or bluetooth remote to control pandora while driving. I now use a inline one button and the JAYS app now. But i recently purchased Headset Button Controller app and it supports 3 button remotes that are compatible with android.. But can't find any remotes that specifically say android supported.

Any suggestions?

Something like this:

I'm interested in seeing responses to this as well. I ride a motorcycle and I like to listen to music. I need to keep the phone on the bike and plugged in, but that means I'm tethered to the bike by my ears ... crashing would be bad.

I'm looking for a way to control the phone with 1 gloved hand while wirelessly listening to whatever I want from the phone.

Only really need play/pause and volume control from remote.

I think I'm gonna order the Jabra bt3030. You can get them out of China on ebay for under $10

Careful about that Jabra bt3030, I have one and the audio performance on those things are below standards. Now I just downloaded an app called Volume+ for my nexus to boost volume and there's a setting for adjusting bluetooth headsets which I have yet to try. Just know that those bluetooths have below standard volume.

Would the "wave control" app work? I am not sure if you mount your phone on your bike.

I use a car dock screen setup like this.

Than mount my phone in a RAM Aquabox with a microusb plug routed into it for power and an audio cord routed into it for sound. I then mount the audio cord's volume control onto the side of the Aquabox. All and all it works well after I sewed some touchscreen-capable things onto the index fingers of my gloves.

I would love a bluetooth remote "button" that when pressed would activate Android Voice Actions. This way you could mount it to the steering wheel and have better hands free. Anyone know if that is possible?
