My car has Bluetooth and it automatically starts playing my phone when I crank it up. But now I am constantly having to switch my now playing list from the book to music and vice versa. I have tried a couple of apps specifically for audio-books but they still change the now playing of the built-in Music app. Any ideas?
Yes Bookmark. I've been using the ios app for years. The only thing is to make sure that iTunes recognises the audio as an audiobook but that's a setting you get to using Get Info on the audio.

I bought Bookmark, but it does exactly what I didn't want--it replaces the default Music app playlist! Arg!

Try Ambling Pro. Although you have to pay for it, it is separate from your music and allows you to select books from the itunes library and has no difficulty with audible nooks. There are also other built methods to get books as well. Additionally, you can actually sort books, bookmark and control the playback speed (very useful if someone speaks to slow for you).

For management, I download everything on my computer and created a iPhone playlist to transfer to my phone (including audible books). In ambling pro I select a book from the "pod media" and it is brought "over".

After I complete the audiobook, I mark it off in my Calibre library and remove it from the phone. If a book is deleted from itunes library it is also deleted from ambling pro. The title will still appear, but the actual book is gone. This is advantageous since it does not make a copy to put into ambling pro (saves space).

This is by far the best player I have tried.

I am hoping that Marvin will eventually integrate the ability import our audiobooks into Calibre making it a true library management system.

Thank you so much for this recommendation. I bought this a couple of days ago ($8.99 in iTunes) and it is pretty much perfect for my needs.

-- It imports books directly from the Apple Music app on the iPhone. No need for a separate sync.

-- Presents each file as a single recording, not as different "parts" as it appears in the Music app.

-- 15 second and 1 minute back/forth buttons.

-- Automatically jumps back 15 seconds when restarting a book after pausing. This is something I always did manually in the Music app.

-- Integrated sleep timer, with a lot of different time options and a great "Shake Phone to Restart Timer" feature. There is a little noise that plays right before the timer goes off so you can give it a shake if you are still awake.

It also has more advanced bookmarking, which I haven't delved into yet.

If Audible has its own application, why not use that?

Because it overwrites the music playlist. Refer to original post. ;-)

Some other options...
AudiobookCD Free does what I want. It has ads, or you can pay 99¢ for ad-free. You can pause from the lock screen, which is nice, but it only has 30s rewind. I am using the free version for now and may get Ambling player if it goes on sale again.

On Cue Player (99¢) will do what I want according to its author, but it is no longer being developed.

Went with AudiobookCD (99¢) after using the free version for a while. Recent update added 30s fwd and back and controls for changing playback speed. 👍 Very happy with it.

Then, in the downcast app there is an import function that will automatically convert to the downcast format AND keep the files out of the Itunes library. It will keep track of place in multiple audiobooks and you can also listen to them at faster speeds if you'd like. Might sound difficult, but I find it much easier and way more reliable than the apps in this thread (most of which I've tried at some point).
I second this. I use Downcast for all my spoken word audio (podcasts and audiobooks). Works fantastic.
