Is possible to create playlist shortcuts on Car Head Unit?
Maybe this option can be the quick solution because playlist shortcut launches "Now playing" directly and hit "play" action.
Maybe we can add a new shortcut to current "Now playing" (and keep current Now playing list)

All that stands and is possible I have both Sync and Playlist shortcut. Problem is that when you listen music and Simply Turn the Car off which puts HeadUnit into Hibernate Mode (on XDA they call it deep freeze mode) and after an hour whole Head unit powers down but remember and start any app that was in Focus at the moment of turning the car key off (Navigation/Media App)

Your are right now playing shortcut would be the quickest workaround ATM.

What do you think that tap on MMA Shortcut(Playlists included)/Widget/Notification if player is playing directly open in Player mode?

Also Auto start playback on startup would be benefit (Add "Force Playback Start" as additional Option to existing) eg. Get in Car -> Turn the Key -> Start Driving -> Tap MMA Widget and if Now playing is preserved Playing starts immediately.
