Now that I think about it, It just started doing multiple notifications after the update but has been doing the thing with the name of the text sender for months... Maybe I'll just switch to an old phone and see what happens. I don't get how the phone or OS affects what the car radio is doing.
There's a lot more to Bluetooth than that you might be aware of (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_B ... (PBAP,_PBA
) and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_B ... ofile_(MAP

There are also complications with different Bluetooth hardware on the phone side and different possible pieces of the software stack, including device drivers. I don't know if you're running pure Android or something modified by the OEM. Some Android phone makers heavily modify Android.
I don't have a phone w/Android Pie. My Android phone is an Nexus 5X stuck on Android 8.1. Off the top of my head, it will probably never receive Pie and it will be dead-ended next month by Google. I also don't have my Android phone paired w/my car.
IIRC, some Android phones ship with multiple apps that can handle SMS. One might even be from the carrier.
Googling for oneplus 6 sms notifications

, for example.
Older Android devices received double notifications if you downloaded a second text message app. That won’t happen if you follow our steps. Android won’t let two be set as “default” at the same time. Additionally, many apps like Textra will have a big Set As Default button at the bottom when you first open it. Making this process even easier.
Now that you set a new app as the default for text, that’s the only program that will be able to send, receive, or alert you about messages....
Every phone can be kinda different on what they do when there's something incoming. I had a non-smartphone long ago (before I think even the 1st iPhone shipped) that would by default speak the name of the caller aloud (or the phone #, if not in the its phonebook) over Bluetooth. Other phones I've had can't do that. I believe iOS has had that feature for a little while but it's not on by default and I've not turned it on.
