Radio Question

Hey all,

Newb here.... I've researched and found all the radio answers I need BUT ONE....

This may sound completely petty but I'm hoping there is a way to fix the biggest gripe I have with my e92 stereo. I listed to Sirius ch 35 and love to see the song and band name of whom I'm listening to. Unfortunately, every time I start the car it defaults to the channel name. I then have to hit the "info" button and scroll down one click every time to bring the song name/band name back into view.

Is there any way to freeze this view so that it comes up each and every time I get in the car?

Thanks in advance.

No. Your only always-on option is the split-screen entertainment details panel.

There is a setting that you can choose to default from channel name to station name and the band name / song always appears. I had the same issue until I found this in iDrive under options. It's called changing the list view page 158 in the PDF manual.
