Sat - Artist/Song info NOT avail in Presets?

Just picked up my car today. During demo, I was excited to see how the Presets work (especially the scroll on the steering wheel and view in gauges).

However, playing with this more I notice that if I'm in Presets and I highlight/select a Satellite Channel, the iDrive screen does not display the Artist/Song info. Instead, it just shows the list of Preset Channels

Can anyone confirm this is just how it is? Or, am I missing something?

I also thought that this was a bit strange, I don't have dab or sat radio, but even an rds radio on a ford focus gives you track or other info broadcast over the rds signal, so why not on the big idrive screen?? I couldn't find any way for it to display it through playing with the settings or reading the manual.

From the preset screen, I move the iDrive to the right, then there is an option to show the artist info. I don't know how to make the iDrive default to this though.
