Default Trigger Google Now via handsfree support?

Hi all, I'm wondering if there is any app that can help me trigger google now from a car using a basic bluetooth commands from the car stereo.
By this, I mean pressing a combinations of bluetooth commands to trigger it (for example, forward-forward-rewind-forward from the steering wheel controls of a car)

The reasoning is that Google Now can already use bluetooth mics to receive commands - the only difficult part is starting up google now when moving (without getting a ticket!)

could this be possible with tasker?

Thanks for any help!

I'm not sure whether it works across bluetooth, but I'm able to bring up voice command with headset button controller on my wired headset by setting a custom remote button pattern.

I'm wondering this too - however I'm wondering if there's some sort of dialler 'middle man' app I could use.. say when I dial '1234' from bluetooth, it runs a custom task (eg triggering google now) - surely someone has written something like that?
