The phone display shows the incoming number as well as indicating when a call is taking place. It's also used to indicate when you're pairing with a device. When you call and it mutes the radio/CD, it displays "PHONE" to let you know that it's detected an outgoing call.
It may not be the car. I have noticed that my Treo 650 has trouble pairing with a TREO bluetooth headset. If any device should work it would be the matching headset you would think. Sometimes I have to pair it multiple times to get recognized. I am going to get in touch with Palm to see what's up.
