UK traffic reports.

Anyone in the Uk with the normal radio know how to turn off TA/TP reports. Ive looked through the settings and can't sem to find the right option. Im getting fed up of my music being interrupted with traffic reports.

Thanks.

On my Oct 2010 F10 it's the button on the far left of the radio / CD central panel. It is a picture of two cars and a beacon I think. Hope it helps.

It's in the manual - pages 191/2 in my 2010 issue (might be different in yours, if so use the index). As 'ipso_facto' correctly says, just press the button.

Thanks guys, found it straight away after you said. I was looking for a setting in iDrive. I tried looking in the only manual I could find online at work but it was American so didn't show me. I only seem to have trouble on the way to work so by the time I was home I kept forgetting to check my manual and never had time to sit stationary to try and find it in the onboard manual.

Pressing the button once terminates the current report, but leaves the system live; pressing twice disables it completely until the ignition is recycled.
The grey box in the upper RH corner of the nav screen displays 'TP' when the system is on.
