    I'm hoping someone can help me. I got my car yesterday and have been unable to find an answer to this.

    I don't always like to listen to radio or music when I drive. For the life of me, I have been unable to figure out how to turn the audio/radio off. The media system seems very unintuitive. Please help!

    Press the left scroll wheel (mute/pause) button.

    . . . unless the 3 is different from the S/X.

    this ^^ if you're listening to streaming music or Bluetooth you can also hit the "pause" button on the screen.

    There's no off button since the radio is just a function of the center screen. You can turn the volume down or select a different source like phone, TuneIn, or streaming. Those sources will only start playing after you select something to play.

    This is correct. Push on the left steering wheel button or pause on the screen. Answer provided by the others - enjoy!

    Is there a way to prevent the radio from coming on whenever the vehicle starts?
