Unfortunately, this method DOES NOT work for the SiriusXM App when using Apple CarPlay. It terminates the iPhone “portion” of the app, but the SiriusXM CarPlay interface is not affected.

Mmmmm.... Maybe they should make "How To" tutorials that are really interesting.. How about "How To Lower Volume in iPhone". Or "How To Charge Your iPhone's Battery"....
