Found this, but not sure if it really works yet...

In Basic Menu (the gold colored screen with the labels of the directions you can push idrive knob, to get here push the knob in the same direction twice) of Control Display, press (hold down) the Controller for 6 seconds. Hint: The help text flashes briefly when it is ready.(my help text is off so this may not happen for you)
^ Turn Controller 3 increments clockwise.
^ Turn Controller 3 increments counter clockwise.
^ Turn Controller 1 increment clockwise.
^ Turn Controller 1 increment counter clockwise.
^ Turn Controller 1 increment clockwise.
^ Press Controller to confirm.
^ Enter "Settings" menu
^ Select "RDS" from menu and you can turn it off, this disables being able to ever see song information though. On the bottom row of information on idrive it will always say FM XX.X.
enable/disable audio system RDS function
