Angry ERROR WITH RNS850 TP Traffic Announcements

I am a new member & have a 2017 Touareg Sport with Technology. Traveling out of my local area and using navigation, I suffered through several pop-up "TP Traffic Announcements", and the radio came on playing an odd music station. The RNS850 manual says these can be turned off, BUT NO. The dealer and the "roving" VW of America tech tell me that 1) my software is current, and 2) my "base model" doesn't allow me to turn this "feature" off. It took them two days (and a lot of fiddling with the car) to decide that.

I'm not convinced that the problem is not fixable. Perhaps the RNS850, is defective? Or the software is "current" but "corrupted"?
Anybody have a thought?
Anybody with a 2017 Treg S with T able to turn these off?

VW chat says:
1. Open the 'RADIO' main menu and select the frequency band.
2. Tap the 'Extras' function button.
3. Deactivate the checkbox 'check mark' in the 'TP' function button by tapping it.
But my infotainment system does not show this option.
Please help!
