Use a bluetooth adapter like the WiRivo.

Can I synch all three devices: Zumo, Iphone and passenger and use them all at the same time - ie. listen to music, but have that interrupted for GPS directionsor when my passenger speaks to me?

Will the above also work if the passenger is synched to their own music source - can they still speak to me?
You have three bluetooth connections available: Phone, Music, and Intercom. GPS is connected through the Phone channel. If you connect the iPhone to the Music channel, I don't think you could use it as a phone through the intercom. If you connect the iPhone to the GPS, you can use it as a phone, but any music you play on the iPhone will not be in stereo since the Zumo 550 does not support stereo bluetooth. To get full phone capability and stereo music capability, connect the iPhone to the Phone channel, and use a bluetooth Adapter on the stereo output of the Zumo, then play music from the Zumo. The order of priority is addressed in the manual.

A link to the manual is available here.

From the Manual:

3.8 Telephone + Stereo (A2DP) + Intercom function
