My Question or Issue

Everytime I start Spotify in Apple CarPlay there´s different content on the home-screen. This is really annoying and it also goes against the purpose with CarPlay - to enhance traffic safety.

I would like to have, at least, a number of fixed items on the home-screen when I start Spotify in my car. I'd like a shortcut to my "created for NN" at the top, to enable me to get to these items really effortless.
The way it works now the Home page is never the same between two uses. That distracts from the driving and I have to really scroll through the list of suggestions to be able to find a way to get to my daily mixes and Discover weekly. That is - if it is there at all. Today I wasn't able to find it anywhere, instead the Home-page was full of suggestions for podcasts, music/playlists with similar content as my previous listening and so on.
The Home-screen need to be recognisable from time to time, and the absolute best would be for it to be user-configurable. That way it would be much safer to use.

At least keep a shortcut to my personalised content present att all times on the Home-page. The way it acts now it is really distracting and unsafe, since I need to shift my focus from driving to my CarPlay screen in order to get to the music I'd like to listen to.
