Bluetooth/Entertainment issues

I've got a 2016 F82 and I've had some frustrating issues with the Bluetooth interface.

To begin with, am I losing my mind or is there no way to pause/play music via the controls in or around the entertainment center? I feel like a total idiot but I can find no mention of a way to pause/play without using my phone?

This leads to my second issue. With some streaming services (and only occasionally) whenever I try to pause or play content via controls on my phone, it pauses, but then automatically starts playing again (beyond annoying at drive-throughs). I'll hit the pause button on my phone (bc I cant find controls for it elsewhere) and it pauses only briefly before automatically resuming.

This leads me to simply turn my music all the way down instead of pausing.

Am I alone? Any solutions? Am I totally missing something?

I may be wrong, but the way to pause music is to simply press the volume knob (which mutes everything, but also pauses playback I believe). At least, whenever I hit that, my music mutes but doesn't play any further.

I thought that was the power button for the whole entertainment system. I guess that works just as well though
