Bluetooth question

If I am sitting in my car listening to music from my iphone through Bluetooth, is there a way to silence other phone sounds? Like games or even this typing? If I adjust the volume, everything lowers…including the music.

Not sure about the game sounds...

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

We use the car's wired USB connector instead of BT, and it seems to avoid/cut down stray sounds w/ iPXr and iP12m (haven't tried w/ iP6s+).

For music, we gotta cycle thru on-screen options, or push button on dash to engage, so no real ease-of use or time saving option. What kinda car and audio set up are you dealing with? Maybe try cycling thru all the available choices, and see/listen to if any cut down on stray sounds, then stick w/ it.

Yeah. I gotta have my steering wheel controls. But I suppose I can turn down the volume on individual things, like games. I just like not having to think about it. It seems like thats something Apple would think of. If I'm listening to music through my car stereo, why in the world would I want to hear sound effects from other extraneous things happening on my phone?
