    I have a Model X on a several day loaner for a project while I wait for mine too arrive. (So very nice of Tesla to do me this kindness.) I've paired my iPhone to the car to listen to music and podcasts. It turns out that, as I walk towards the car, they connect and my phone, and thus the car, starts playing the podcast where I left off, even if I'm not yet in the car to listen. So, I'll pause my phone. And every few minutes it seems, my podcasts start playing again. And I stop it again. And a few minutes later, it starts again.

    Anyone else experience this? Even better, anyone else find a solution?

    I'd like to find a solution before I have to return the car.

    Yep, same issue here. You get used to it. But, if you find a solution, I'd love to hear about it.

    Only thing I've come up with so far is to turn off bluetooth on your phone. On an iPhone, it's a swipe from the bottom and hitting the bluetooth button.
