Google Maps, Apple Maps, Waze, Tom Tom, Viago/Garmin, Navigon I have tried. None of these can pause a freakin podcast and I'm forced to listen to both talk over each other or constantly swipe up the audio controls and rewind which is distracting and dangerous. It's 2014 and there are millions of podcast listeners, especially while driving, how is there no solution?? I am not even clear who is at fault. Has Apple made it impossible for other apps to pause Podcasts or have these app makers simply not implemented this simple feature. I'm not sure who I should even be complaining to. Edit: To clear any confusion, Tom Tom and Navigon have an option to pause but they don't work with any apps other than the built in Music app, (which makes no sense because you usually want to pause Podcasts and only soften Music). I know the Waze "hack" that switches to the phone speaker while speaking, but it doesn't actually stop the audio and you end up losing half to a whole sentence during the switch. These aren't solutions.
