This^ is the whole thing in a nutshell. We could go into the safety aspect, we could debate the pros and cons, but that sums it all up.

When I first got the Scala I immediately Bluetoothed the phone, hopped on the ST and went for a ride. I used the Voice Dialing feature and called my closest motorcycle riding friends so that we could all experience the wonder of the Scala Rider. It does work very well.

While I do enjoy the ability to receive a call while riding, I find it distracts not only my attention but also my enjoyment of the ride. Since I upgraded to the Iphone, I have never Bluetoothed it to the Scala. I only use the Scala for Bike to Bike with Dad.
Never run out of traction, ideas and real estate all at the same time.

I don't use a Garmin on the bike (truck yes, so I could test, I suppose), but I do use a Scala, and mine connects to both the phone and the GPS with no problems. There's a precedence order built into the Scala, and it seems to work fine (so far). Internal radio, then GPS, then phone. I don't have music on either the GPS nor phone, so I don't know how that would be impacted. Silence may seem irritating to some, but I prefer it.
