The moment I get in my car, it starts playing "Life is Good" or other pre-loaded crappy music that's on my phone. How do I stop this?
I know that if I have any other music on my phone's storage, it will start playing that instead but I prefer to use streaming music and it's really annoying that I have to stop it every single time.

Wow that sounds horrible lol. If I had to guess, it would probably be that it's playing the flac files located in Preload/LG seeing as 01_Life_Is_Good.flac is the name the first file. Maybe try moving those up a level or two or rename them to .bak

That's strange. Mine doesn't play anything until i tell it to. Does the car have a menu option auto play? I assume you prob messed around with it already.

Some love it but I personally think it is one of the useless feature in car.

I don't think there is any option on vehicle but I will check. It is setup as if it hits play as soon as it establishes connection.

I moved them out of LG Preload folder but music player stills finds them. If player finds them, BT will still auto play them. I will just delete them to stop this. However it doesn't solve the problem which will return when I add any other music to my phone, in that case that will start playing.

I will check around car forums.
Thanks for confirming this is not Android related issue.

Auto play is a feature of A2DP just as auto connect is. There is mostly likely a setting somewhere in the vehicle's system to shut it off. If not, well then just remember, life's good...

You could remove the preloaded music files, cant play them if they arent there. I also use the app Bluetooth connect and play. It starts any app you want when a specific bluetooth connection is made.

This happened to me, it was google music, or play music, whatever your default music player is usually does this. Sometimes its poweramp, or other.. but usually it was google music for me. IN music settings, turn off bluetooth or auto connect.

But I want to keep some music files in my phone - eventually..
What I need is the way to hide music files from Music Player unless I play them back using something like ES Explorer or other file manager, or until I browse in Music app.

I can't find Music Settings, is it in the app or general settings somewhere?
If I turn off Bluetooth or auto connect then will I still be able to play streaming music? I really don't mind if I can disable auto play or bluetooth streaming for Music Player or Google Play Music since I probably will never stream stored music from my phone via bluetooth, all of my stored music is generally duplicated on my car anyway..

Another way to solve this issue would be to assign another dummy Music player as default music player, and when it runs it won't be able to find music that's stored on the phone.
