Phantom Drain with Spotify

Hi All,

Been noticing phantom drain of 12-15 miles overnight with my 100D MX AP2 MCU1 after the V10 update. Normally, I'd get -3 miles over night. Checked to verify that it wasn't due to sentry or smart pre-conditioning.

I had a feeling that it was spotify related so I've been switching my car's music to phone and oddly enough, the drain is back to 3 miles per night.

I checked my spotify while at the gym because it wasn't playing out of my earphones. It was connected to my car still and playing out of the car. After getting home, I switched the music mode off spotify and back onto phone and saw that playing to my car was no longer an option on my phone. I have a feeling that leaving spotify mode on the car is preventing the MCU from going to sleep.

Just sharing my story to anyone else who's been having this phantom drain issue.
