I've never seen this in nearly three years with this car... upcoming "features" on route. Maybe the kids have been playing with the setup menu?

Mine started doing that at some point in the last year. It's nice when out in the boonies, but a royal pain in suburban Chicago. It obscures my next actual direction.

I have messed around with every option I can think of in the Nav unit itself but can't find what toggles it.

While writing this, I though about it being a setting in the MFD, not the Nav system.

I've never found a setting for it. Mine stopped working recently when the dealer fixed my Nav antenna. I thought hey turned it off some how. After about a week, though, it started showing up again.

That looks like the NAV display tap in the MFD. Use the right side steering wheel arrow control switches to move between NAV, CAR, PHONE, and RADIO.

Just tab through the 4 different screens while driving. It's always there.

You missed the point. He is talking specifically about the display showing there is a rest stop ahead. Mine will show different things at the next exit, like Dunkin Donuts or other amenities. Not the exit that you should get off for your selected navigation, but the next exit on the highway. I will often turn on guidance, even if I know where I am going so that I can get this info.

Exactly. I used to have this type of information displayed on the MFI but can no longer see it. Hoping someone is aware of an embedded option somewhere in the system.

Oooh, I really like the idea of seeing "Dunkin' Donuts next junction"!

I might even give up using paper maps for THAT function!!
