I have looked for an answer to this and unless I'm going blind I've not seen this exact question. Which is..
My car has built in Bluetooth but can only handle phone calls and not music via the Bluetooth.
Now when I had an iPhone I connected it to the car via the data cable, phone calls were routed via Bluetooth and the music and camera alerts came out of the car speakers and were muted when a call was made or received.
I've since gone over to the other side and now have a Galaxy S3 android phone, and whilst I can get the calls to connect via Bluetooth if I set camera alert to do the same I get feedback if I'm on a call and CA decides to chip in with a warning. There doesn't seem to be the same options in the Android version for the routing of audio.
If I remember rightly the iPhone allowed you to have alerts either via Bluetooth, via device speaker or out through the data cable. On the Android version only Device speaker and Bluetooth are given as the option.
I know I can have the alerts via the device speaker but that could be in my pocket and therefore barely audible.
Again apologies if this has already been covered.

Have you tried the 'default' audio output setting, and then in your phone's Bluetooth Device list find the car Bluetooth system, tap and hold it and select "use for stereo audio". I had prob with android and parrot when 'bluetooth' audio output was selected, switching to default cured it, albeit different symptoms to you.
Apologies if you have already done this and I have missed the point

No need to apologise we've all missed the blindingly obvious from time to time. :-) Unfortunately I have tried the default setting but the car system doesn't have the full BT spec and so mixing the announcements with phone calls results in a howl round you'd rather do without. If there's any way they can do the same with the a DROID S they do with the iPhone then the problem will go away.

I get the howl around too if I use device speaker & have to reboot the phone to cure it. I used device speaker simply because I prefer it to having the car speakers constantly cutting in & out with warnings. I couldn't find a solution so now I use CA on a Nexus 7 sat on the passenger seat which is a good compromise.
