2011 328xi Radio question-- Turn off station names

Hi,
I have a new 2011 328xi, and have an annoying issue that I can't figure out from the manual.

When storing presets for FM radio, the radio is replacing the station # with the name of the station. This is really annoying. I'd much prefer the station be labeled "92.9" instead of "WBOS."

Does anyone know how to turn this feature off? On my 2006 X3, I can toggle some RDY button and it turns off the display names. I can't find a similar option on this car.

Thanks

It's the RDS option. You need to turn it off. If you have iDrive it's under the Option button when in Radio mode.
