ConnectedDrive apps whilst driving...

So have just taken delivery of my new 328i and still learning the connected drive system. One of the many selling points of the vehicle was spotify integration using my iPhone. If i connect the iPhone via USB cable the spotify app becomes available under the connected drive menu, i can then browse all my playlists and have full cover art whilst playing music. The system works really well. But.... this only works whilst stationary with the vehicle in Park and the handbrake on. If i drive off with spotify playing the system continues to play the song but the spotify app in connected drive is greyed out, it displays a message "For your safety: certain applications can only be used stationary" -

Is there a way to disable this? I like switching between DAB radio and my music whilst driving and I can't do this with spotify. Once i drive off i cannot select the spotify app at all. So in order to do this whilst driving i need to pull over, put the car in park and apply the handbrake just to change my music source. This is crazy.

Work around...

Bit of a work around, if i start spotify through connected drive, then select the playlist i want and start playing; when i drive off the cover art along with the song information disappears and shows the warning as described above. Now if i exit out of this and select multimedia, then external devices and select my 'phone via USB' i will have my song details and cover art back along with skip forward and back. Still not ideal but at least now the screen isn't wasted.
