TLDR: Is there a way to get Car Thing presets to start podcasts from where I left off?


I’m a big podcast listener and was excited to get the 4 presets on Car Thing to jump back into podcasts quickly on road trips nearly hands-free. It also makes for easy copiloting as my passenger can jump into the podcasts we love without having to navigate through a bunch of other stuff. However when using a preset to go to a podcast, Car Thing plays that podcast from episode 1. The podcasts I listen to have 100s of episodes so scrolling to get from episode 1 to episode 245 while driving is tedious and quite dangerous. Is there a way to get Car Thing presets to start podcasts from where I left off?

Hey @bioniccorndog 

 

I just tested this out by saving one of my favorite podcasts to one of the 4 Car Thing preset buttons.

 

The same thing happens to me. It always starts at the first podcast episode.

 

It appears that this is currently the expected behavior -- it also starts playlists from the first song as well.

 

I'll pass on your feedback and hopefully this is something that can be improved in the future.
