garmin 700 series, 800 series--external mic?

looking to get GPS tHat I can use on motorcycle as well as car. The Garmin zumo 550 is over $900! tom tom rider $650. it doesn't let you make calls while moving. So thinking of getting maybe nuvi 760 and setting up bluetooth to phone and then needed to use output jacks to take sound to my communication system and from there to my headset and input jacks to take voice through communication system into GPS. the accessories page of the 700, 800 series shows an external mic as an option. But in owners manual, I do not see a jack for a mic. there is a jack that says headphone. anyone know what that jack actually is? Pretty poor manual.

Got a 750, same as 760, just w/o bluetooth.

They do have an output jack - I plug mine into my Solstice radio face to input MP3s through system. Works much better than the FM modulator.
