song info displaying incorrectly over bluetooth

Recommended Posts

Information for the currently-playing song recently started displaying incorrectly on my car's head unit when playing audio over bluetooth.  Here is a picture demonstrating the problem:

As you can see, the "artist" line is now displaying both the artist's name and the album name separated by a '-'.  The "song name" line displays correctly.  Then, the "album name" line is displaying the song's duration and the file type separated by a '|'.  This just started happening within the last week or so (I have Poweramp set to automatically update).  Previously, all of the currently playing song information displayed correctly on my car's head unit.  So, for example, the song in the picture previously displayed as:

Nirvana
Love Buzz
Bleach

I'm running a Pixel 3 with the stock Android 9 rom.  Poweramp version is "v3-build-820-play (Full Version)".  I have made no firmware updates or settings changes to my car's head unit.

Same issue in my car as well. Also it doesn't display the song length, and it will go from 0-5seconds then the timer will go back to 0.

I'm using pixel xl android 9.0 stock

Poweramp v3 build 820

This seems to be a problem with the way some bluetooth devices read the provided info from incorrect fields, see:

I can confirm that disabling everything under "Settings -> Misc -> Android Auto" in Poweramp makes song info display correctly again in my non-Android Auto equipped car.
