Is there a solution for recording sound through and external mic with the Karma Grip?

Currently, you cannot use an external mic with the Hero5 Black while it's mounted in the Karma Grip.

Seems like a firmware update could potentially solve this by allowing the external mic adapter to connect through the base of the Grip.  Please make this happen, GoPro.
