Same here. Any idea on how to enable RDS? I have both PTY and RDS boxes checked on the setting screen.

Go into service mode, ensure radio area = EUROPE and not OCEANIA.

It will work better when in EUROPE mode.

Switch radio on, press and hold SELECT and wait.

Or:

BM53 with Widescreen board monitor:
• Turn on the radio.
• Within 8 seconds, press the “INFO” button.
• From the info screen select RDS
• Press and hold the BM control knob for at least 8 seconds.
• Scroll through functions using the station < > search buttons.
• Turn off the radio to end the service mode

I'm in USA mode, but no RDS displayed on any stations.

Your radio may not be RDS capable, or the RDS may be turned off. Have you been through the available options in the Service Menu?

Then maybe you have no stations in your area using RDS, or your RDS part of your radio is faulty.
