Mein Auto: 745i
Canadian BMW 2005 745i. I can't find an RDS on/off selection

I have a Canadian BMW 2005 745i. I can't find an RDS on/off selection. My radio stations were tuned in a while ago and remained unchanged until recently. I had noticed over the last few weeks that the song titles and artists were being displayed when selecting some FM stations. Great feature. However, I wanted to store a different FM station in digital format (e.g. 103.5) in the MEMORIZED list. Step 1>select MANUAL. Step 2>select 103.5. Step 3>select MEMORIZED. Step 4>enter (by pressing I-Drive Controller. Step 5>rotate Controller to desired MEMORIZED number of the displayed list of radio stations. Step 6>enter (by pressing I-Drive controller). However, whatever text is being displayed is now the MEMORIZED station identifier. So, how do I turn off the RDS so that I can store the station/s in digital format? The dealer does not have a ready answer and is researching. Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks. G.

Thanks Tim. Good news. Just got a phone call from my BMW dealer's service manager. He has found the solution. It requires unlocking the computer. He will demonstrate next Tuesday.
