I did notice that if shuffle is turned off, it happens less. I did get better results by setting up a playlist of all the songs in alpha order with no shuffling. That playlist does not exhibit the "please wait". I have about 10K songs spread over ~60GB.

I think the car does not understand what song is served up next by the apple device if the car is on shuffle and apple device is on shuffle so its waiting for some sort of a static list and not getting it so showing "please wait" - completely speculative on my part however.
Thanks. I do use shuffle and your explanation fits.
