I would be half way through my hour long podcast only to have it start from the beginning, which is extremly annoying. I want it to pick up where it left off, i tried different apps and all other stuff and it would not work. In the end, i found the perfect solution.

What happeneds is that when your phone connects to the car and if you are in the bluetooth source mode, the CAR sends a MEDIA_PLAY command to your phone. If you switch mode (say to FM radio) , the car sends a MEDIA_PAUSE to the phone. When you switch back to bluetooth source, another MEDIA_PLAY gets sent from the car to the phone.

Now when you turn your car off, the car sends a MEDIA_STOP to the phone, which tells the phone to stop the current track and reset it to the beginning of the track. What i did was (root needed) edit the file (only applicable to Android) edit the file /system/usr/keylayout/AVRCP.kl and changed bluetooth mapping for MEDIA_STOP to MEDIA_PAUSE. This is the perfect solution and fixes the reset problem and now behaves exactly how i want it.

Not sure if anyone else was encountering this 'problem'
sounds good. I am sorry if this sounds 'simple' or obvious, but would it not be less trouble to just change to FM radio a couple of seconds before you turn the engine off so it triggers the Media_pause command?

By the way, when I listen to music from my USB, the car remembers the exact point the song was left at, and picks it up from there next time I start the car. Is it different when you stream the music through bluetooth?
