that is what i use on my motorcycle with my 16g ipod nano and it works great. i would like to find something with a similar remote for music on my epic touch. i have spent days looking for something. i don't want my headphones connected to it, and it needs to be glove friendly to a point. all i would like to do is next, back, vol up and down.
thanks much for any info.

Hi guys, getting closer to a solution here... It's for iPad so far, but since it is bluetooth I hope it is only a matter of time before it will work with Android as well.

There is a remote called Satechi BT Media remote that is compatible with iPhones.

If it works like like a Apple Bluetooth Keyboard, media functions should work with Galaxy Note.

This may be a good solution for a inexpensive fix. The Sony Ericsson LiveView. (Cant post outside links yet so search for "Sony Ericsson LiveView Bluetooth Phone Remote with Micro Display for Xperia PLAY and Other Android-Based Phones - Retail Packaging - Black" on Amazon.

The reviews aren't spectacular, says it looses connection every now and then, but for $30 (Retail Packaging on Amazon) I can deal with that. Normally I think the device is around $100 though.

I just ordered one so when it comes in I'll test it out and post back.

P.S. - Ive been looking for this kind of solution for weeks now and I'm surprised that there isn't an item like this out there already....
