Android Auto AntennaPod Playback

App version: x.y.z (state whether from Google Play/F-Droid/Custom built APK)
2.7.1 Google Play

Android version: 12

Device model: One+ Nord2 5G

Expected behaviour:
My current podcast starts playing through Android Auto while using Gmaps navigation. The AntennaPod controls are displayed okay.

Current behaviour:
After about two minutes playback stops although the display button shows it as still playing. Neither the controls in Android Auto nor the controls on the phone will get it to play again.

It seems like on entering the car Bluetooth connects and the podcast automatically starts playing via Bluetooth. When the USB C is connected to the phone and navigation starts the podcast continues to play via Bluetooth not switching to Android Auto.

After a couple of minutes playback stops but it can be started again only if I turn Bluetooth off on the phone.

Fiddling with the phone while driving is not a good idea.
