Bluetooth PTT headset?

Does anyone know of a Bluetooth headset that will work with the PTT function on Direct Connect phones?

I work for a delivery company and we recently switched our fleet over to Kyocera Duraplus phones from the old Nextel phones. We have about 40 phones on a talkgroup.

Our problem is that DOT requires us to be hands free so we can't pick up the phone while driving, even to use the PTT function.

We've been experimenting with a couple Bluetooth headsets. The headsets themselves work pretty good, but the problem is that you still have to reach for the phone and push the button to talk. What we really need is a headset that has a PTT button on it. The phone says it's compatible with that function, but the headsets seem to be made of unobtainium.

Or....Does anyone have a way to make the button on a regular BT headset work with PTT? These phones only have Direct Connect service and do not make phone calls or do anything else so that would be an option, but it doesn't seem that it's possible.
