Apple CarPlay Launches Pandora

This did not work for me. It still opens up constantly. Upon connecting, then upon closing the app. It won't go away. I have unchecked "Enable Launch from Car" under "BluetoothDevices" in the Advanced Settings. What now?

Same issue here. IOS 15.1, Pandora 2110.1, Subaru 2019 Outback with Starlink

This only started a few months ago when the Subaru dealer updated the Starlink software on my car. When I read about it at the time, I saw the suggestion to make sure that Enable Launch from Car was turned off (which seems to only refer to Bluetooth), but I did that and it stopped.  Suddenly last week, Pandora has decided again to keep starting every time I connect my phone to the car via USB. We went on a trip and needed to connect for navigation purposes and no matter what I did, Pandora kept opening constantly even though I was listening to Spotify. I use Pandora for different types of music than Spotify, but if this keeps up. I'll just delete the darn app. It's insanely frustrating and obviously a Pandora problem since I see other vehicle types have the same problem.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek. 2020 iPhone SE w/ iOS 15.2. Pandora v. 2110.1.1. Subaru requires connection via USB port in car to connect to CarPlay. Enable Launch From Car is turned off.  Yet Pandora opens automatically and won’t close. 

I assume Pandora either doesn’t care about the issue or doesn’t employ anyone competent enough to solve the problem since Pandora has done nothing to fix the problem. This is THE ONLY app I have with this issue.

It’s just about time to delete Pandora.

I am also currently having this issue. I just updated the software in my vehicle recently as well.

iOS version: 15.2

Pandora version: 2110.1.1

Vehicle Info: 2019 Subaru Outback

It definitely sounds like it is a vehicle software issue but I hope it gets fixed soon!!

I just got a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee L and am having the same issue. I disabled the Bluetooth setting in pandora and it still auto starts when connected to CarPlay.

Same issue 2019 Outback, ios 15.1.1

Almost got us into an accident trying to see map when detoured in Milwaukee on Spaghetti Junction (hubz was driving).

This is a safety issue

This is an issue for me as well, once there is a fix, I'll redownload Pandora as it is my favorite music app, but until it is fixed I had to uninstall it.  Looks like iOS 15 is causing the same issue, still waiting for a fix.

2019 Forester. Same issue. I’m resigning that it’ll never be fixed and Pandora no longer cares about a solution. Looks like I have to figure out how to use Spotify

2019 Subaru Forester Sport. Issue has been happening for over a year. Support doesn’t even respond any more. I have all updates downloaded to the vehicles software and have iOS15.2.1 on my phone. I’m more than a little over it. I’ve been a Pandora customer for at least 13 years. But I am switching to Spotify because this issue has annoyed me for too long.

Same issue for me. 2022 Subaru Outback.  iPhone Xs, iOS 15.3.1 

As soon as I plug my phone into the USB, Pandora takes over.  I can't close the app.  When I try, it just opens right back up.  It even hijacks other apps when I try to open them.  Incredibly annoying and it's clearly been a known issue for years.  If there isn't a resolution soon I will delete the app.
