What is the mic for?

We picked up our new 2861 two weeks ago and have figured out most things except for this one. There is a small microphone clipped to the headliner above the driver, I thought it might be for the backup camera audio but I realize now that the audio is one way only - outside to inside. So what is this microphone for? I know I should ask my dealer, but the folks on this forum seem to be the best source for answers.

thanks, Bob A

The mike is for your "hands free" Bluetooth connection to your cellphone....

The good news is the Jensen in our GTS was very easy to pair with our cell phones...

That's direct contact from your lips to God's ears for one of those "OH S**T" moments....
