In my car, it does exactly what you want - play music from my phone via bluetooth and interrupts with GPS instructions. There is a separate volume control on my car for the music volume and the GPS volume. I can adjust the GPS volume for the 2-3 seconds the GPS voice is going, but otherwise you might need to go in and adjust it in the settings.

YMMV depending on the model of car. What model is it?

I recently rented a Nissan that interrupted music from the phone for directions.

Mentioned elsewhere my car was just totaled. Looking at buying a new car, adn it has apple car play. This is what I want -- can it do this?

Listen to audible and/or podcasts with navigation on the screen, but NO nav audio. I just want to have it up, so I can remember that I want exit 153, for example, but I don't need it reminding me 17 times.

Alternatively, can I get it to pause the audible/podcast while it interrupts, instead of talking over it? Or does it do this automatically?

When you say "interrupted" do you mean talked over the music? Or paused it and automatically resumed?

Yeah, you can listen to a podcast and have GPS on the screen. You can change audio guidance notifications with two presses on the screen. It should pause audiobooks/podcasts when giving guidance and talk over radio.

Awesome, thanks. Probably picking up my new car in the next couple of days. The one that was totaled was 16 years old, and I planned to keep it another 5+, but I guess there are some advantages to newer ones!

Nissan looks to have started rolling out compatibility in 2017 starting at the higher price points and rolling down. Altima was added for 2019. So, Sentra in 2021?
