agree, it works just like a bluetooth phone. the in-car controls for skip forward and back work fine (on my wife’s model X).
the only annoyance is it doesn’t pause/turn off until the car locks; so I’m walking away from the car but my podcast is still playing. I actually have an “arrive” shortcut I run that includes a step to tell Overcast to pause (among other things, otherwise I’d just pause overcast manually. might even be able to from the car screen). I don’t know if PocketCasts supports shortcuts or not.
the X is very good at reconnecting and resuming playback. although sometimes iOS 13 has kicked overcast out of memory, so I have to run Overcast again.
also, I’ve had a lot of fun comparing Waze’s route to the car’s nav system (which uses google maps data). they match about 2/3 of the time (when they don’t I follow waze)
