Is there a way to stop playing the first song on my iPod on startup?

2011 E92 328 non iDrive
I am really getting tired if hearing Grizzly Bear - About Face every time I start my car in the morning hah. It's the first song alphabetically so it plays first. Seriously, it's just getting annoying. I would really rather it not play anything until I play something which is mostly streaming audio or a book.

Yeah, stop playing your ipod. That will stop the song from playing I'm pretty sure.

Since you don't have I drive make sure your iPod is in shuffle mode especially if you keep it in the car all the time.

I'm trying to say it's playing my iPod automatically. (Really my iPhone). Every time I start my car, it just automatically starts playing the first song on my list.

I would really like if I could turn off automatic playing entirely and just wait for me to pick a playlist.

I am annoyed by this to, even with idrive there is no function to disable autoplay when the device is connected.

I made a silent mp3, then in iTunes updated the meta data so it sorts as AAAAAAAAAA - therefore always first to play. Gives me time to pick the music or podcast I want.

Why don't you just bag the iPod, get a USB stick, and put what's on your iPod on the USB stick? The car is perfectly capable of playing MP3/M4A files without an iPod. It is the iPod in between the music and the car that's causing the problem.
