Has anyone else experienced this:

when plugged into the car kit, the ipod 3G autoplays, preventing other applications from outputting to car audio system?

the details... plug iphone in to car kit (5v. adapter) and the ipod controls are offloaded to the head unit (bose/audi). the ipod screen on the iphone says 'accessory connected'. there is no way to control the ipod from the iphone interface. the head unit has no 'stop' command

if there are any audio files synced with the iphone they are autoplaying. which prevents pandora or what have you from using the car audio.

IF you delete all of the audio files, pandora and other apps work perfectly.

Is there a way to stop the ipod from autoplaying.... to disable the ipod without deleting the ipod music?

iphone 3g, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

    I get the same thing when plugging in the headphones that came with the iPhone 3G. When I squeeze the microphone on the headphone it automatically goes to the music library and plays the song. It seems to be the default to go to the songs in the main library. There is no setting within the iPhone and I believe this is the same problem your encountering. Most of the time I want to listen to podcasts, but the phone always goes to the music library at first until I navigate to the podcasts.

    I am guessing we might have to wait for an update with user feedback to change the default behavior.

    I also have this problem and both of our cars have different hook up models but yet have the same autoplay effect. Which is especially annoying when listening to Pandora or just plugging in to recharge. Does anyone have an answer to how to eliminate this autoplay???
