How to turn off TA

The TA on my Fiat 500 pop is turned on so when I am playing a CD it keeps getting interrupted by traffic announcements and cannot find a way to stop it.There is nothing in
the manual and as this has only just started I am presuming I pressed a button somewhere by mistake can anyone out there help.The car has a 2012 plate.

Photo of the unit's controls might help.

Quick google so might be same as yours

Under "Settings" - "Radio" - "Traffic Announcements" - "ON" you can enable Traffic-Announcements

I rented a 2017 Ford Mondeo while I was in the UK last month - somehow, the traffic announcements were at maximum volume - very off-putting when you are listening to the Archers Podcast!

You're not really telling us you listen to the Archers in the NSX, are you?;)

Thanks, I think krypton is probably correct that your answer lies under the menu button, although it's hard to see how you could have inadvertently triggered it.

Setting the volume during an announcement should establish a default level for subsequent announcements.

No, never.
Only listen to The Archers in the car when we are back in the UK, hence the rented Mondeo, slogging up and down the M6 / M1 visiting the rellies.

It was the big menu button near the radio he pressed that and found Traffic Announcements which was turned on and he turned it off.Not sure how it came to be on as I have never used that menu button I just use the menu option on the stalk but will know if it happens again.There is a picture of the menu button on reply 8.Thanks for all the help and advice.

For future search results and traffic (eh traffic eh) it might be good to edit the original post to include Fiat 500 Pop and turning off traffic announcements ;)
