Disable Bluetooth Audio Autoplay w/ Android Phone?

This is driving me crazy... I've been searching the 'net for a solution, and can't seem to find anything better than some workarounds.

My Droid X phone supports an Audio Profile for Bluetooth. And, obviously, so does my '11 CM Platinum with the factory radio w/ NAVI. The issue is that selecting BT as the audio input source immediately fires up the audio player on the phone and starts playing the media files.

I have something like five MP3s on my phone, and they're all ringtones. I don't use my phone as a media player per se - except when I use IHeartRadio. I HATE having to fiddle with the phone to stop the media player and then have the IHeartRadio app start up after the fact.

Does anyone know how to STOP the autoplay feature via Bluetooth? Or, at least stop it for the phone? I can appreciate that you would want something like an iPod to fire up if you were controlling it via BT, but I believe that it should at LEAST be a configurable option.

I've tried changing the Player Options in the Head Unit to connect from the device and NOT connect from the vehicle. But, this seems to make the use of BT Audio a huge nightmare.

Any thoughts?

You can either pair your device as a handsfree device only and not an audio gateway, or you can try to take the 5 MP3s out of your playlist so your music player has nothing to play.

Try downloading WinAmp on your android (its free in the marketplace) and set it as the default player. I dont think it adds songs automagically. So it should have a blank playlist.

Or you could delete the music player all together. But I wouldnt suggest that.

Registered as a non-media player is not an option for me as I want to be able to play media through the system. What I don't want to do is play any MP3 files off of my phone - I want to use iheartradio.

Using a different media player doesn't seem to be a valid option since the "autoplay" is not tied to the player, it's tied to the Bluetooth sending the start signal to the phone.

Removing the media players is also not an option since that requires rooting the phone.

Well, put it this way, I use WinAmp and it doesnt autoplay unless I was playing something before.

I have a ROM on mine though, and the stock media app is deleted, so I can't tell you which is doing what without trial and error.

Good luck.
