Is there a Bluetooth device I can use with my Android phone which has nothing more than previous, play/pause, and next track buttons?

There are many AVRCP Bluetooth devices, but they are all also A2DP sinks, which I do not want – I plug my phone's headphone output into my car's aux input.

Ideally, I'd like something I can mount to the steering wheel so I can change tracks without trying to find the button on my touchscreen.

Alternatively, could I buy a small A2DP/AVRCP device like this and configure Android to not send audio, but still respond to the track controls?

The Sony LiveView may fit the bill.

+10 - I ordered one and it arrived today. This is exactly what I was looking for. The wristband wraps perfectly around my steering wheel spoke; I could not ask for a better mount spot. You wouldn't happen to know how to adjust this thing's screen timeout? It turns off after just a few seconds. – josh3736 Feb 9 '11 at 4:59
No, sorry, I don't actually have one but I've been eyeing it for a while for the same reasons you had. I'm glad to hear it worked for you. I think I'm going to order one soon. – Matt Feb 9 '11 at 8:43
