We have the same regulatory hurdle here in Ontario actually
all of Canada , fortunately a strong representation by amateur
radio lobby has given us an exemption at least for another year.
Having said that the local police jurisdictions will often charge
you under the "distracted driving" regulation and you then will
have to go to traffic court and show the JP/judge the exemption
to have the charge dropped.
There are several Bluetooth/vox systems available however they
are not cheap , I personally clip the mic to my shirt below eye level
and use it without flaunting it , the stealthy antenna helps avoid
usual attention that a lot ham radio porcupine cars attract.
