Issue changing / skipping track in VW Composition Media System

Anyone else having this issue?

 

iPhone 6, latest iOS. Plugged into USB port of media system in vehicle (vehicle is brand new model Polo).

 

Music plays fine through audio system of car. You have to use the spoitfy interface on the phone to start playing music, change tracks etc. Volume control on car's media system controls the volume fine as does the control on the steering wheel. However, when trying to skip to next track or control the music (such as play, pause etc) using the touchscreen of the VW media system or the controls on the steering wheel, spotify stops playing and iTunes on the iphone starts either playing from the last point or selects a track randomly.  In otherwords, trying to control spotify using the media system's controls (including those on the steering wheel) causes spotify to stop playing and iTunes to start up. The only way to control spotify is through the phone's interface which isnt an option when driving.  The only way to get spotify playing again is to grab the phone, bring up the spotify interface and hit play, or select a track via the touch screen of the phone.

 

I've also noticed metadata (track name, graphics etc) not transferring correctly and wrong track being shown on the VW's media system.
