Default Music starts playing automatically in car over bluetooth

This is a problem that happened with my DINC 1 and its happening with my DNA too. When I get in my car the music app automatically opens and starts playing through the bluetooth in the car speakers. It's really, really annoying. Anyone else? Fixes?

Every Android phone I have had has done this. I have not found a real workable workaround yet, makes it really hard to check my voicemail over the bluetooth as the music constantly tries to play.

Yeah it is a feature not a bug. Anytime you exit the music player app without shutting it down, it will start when connected to bluetooth.

In my experience even shutting it down does not stop it.

I have a similar issue, but not on bluetooth. And had same issue with my HTC Dinc1.

When playing audio via headphones with the non-stock music app (i.e. an audiobook player), the music app will randomly come on and start playing music (over/on top of my audiobook). Weird that this happens with both HTC phones I've owned.

Just started happening on the DNA this weekend after dozens of hours listening without incident, incidentally on mile 19 of a marathon, a point I really didn't want to be fuddling with the damn phone.

Default Same thing here

I have the DROID DNA and the same thing randomly started happening to me. I don't know what it is, but it even seems like it bounces between the Amazon MP3 app and my regular music app. Either one of them will start playing music when I start my car. I don't know why, especially when I back completely out of it every time.

Any resolution yet?

I actually figured out how to stop it today.

Clear your queue on the apps. If one has a clear queue the other will play. My Google Music and stock Music player had been going back and forth, I cleared both queue's and no automatic starts with my music apps anymore.

You just have to remember to clear them when you are done.

Default Same problems with Ford Synch

I don't have any queues on my phone a Samsung SCH. At first I thought it had to do with whether or not I had used the BT synch the last time I was in the car, but that did not help. Actually every time I get in the car the default Sound player starts. It does not play through the car it just starts on the phone and it does not shut off even after I leave the car unless I manually stop it. If I try to play anything else through the car the sound player plays over the other player.

You have to turn off audio sync under bluetooth settings.

Same problem here on HTC Eris. When i plug in external speakers (to listen to podcast) the damn music player starts automatically. I can't uninstall it, there are no settings to adjust and it's a sonofabitch to even turn the damn thing off! I can't believe this has gone on this long and HTC or Google haven't offered a fix yet.

Best fix I've found is to install the app Headset Blocker (found on google play)
