Radio Station Names on iDrive 08

How do you set the radio stations so the names (and not the title of the song that happened to be playing) gets stored as the label shown by iDrive???

Thanks

I had the same problem, not sure what the answer is. All I know is when I had Sirius installed and they had to update the idrive and its been fine ever since? Not sure if it was a glitch??

I'm unsure exactly what you are seeking. Do you want the names of the radio station to appear in idrive? Thus, instead of 105.9 it would say KIIS or whatever? If so, i believe you just press down on the controller after selecting a station and choose rds.

wait for the radio station name to appear on the screen instead of the song ID, or wait till commercials then set it

When I select RDS all my radio stations just say "LOCAL ##" where ## is 1 thru 18 I believe.
