MachE is terrible at guessing where I am going... can I make it stop?

When I get it in the car and start driving about 2 minutes into the trip a "pop up" banner tries to guess where I am going. I looked through all the settings and can not figure out how to get the car to stop "guessing". I understand that the car is tracking me but this feature is fairly creepy and would like to turn it off if possible.

you definitely have to be able to turn it off, because it doesn't seem to be on in my car, I've never seen it before

yes, you can definitely turn it off. I can't remember if it's in the nav settings or the general settings, but it is definitely configurable

There has been at least twice now, that this will pop up, and then start navigation to that destination without me doing anything. I've been driving and all the sudden it starts giving me directions. That's been a weird one. I've also had cruise control turn on randomly too. I think my MME might be haunted

On the cruise it is easy to bump the on/off button. The on button also sets the cruise.

Turn off notifications of predictions (they'll still be available under your profile icon or in nav)
Navigation Settings > Notifications > Predicted Destination Alert

Or turn off nav predictions entirely at
Navigation Settings > User Data > Destination Suggestions

Turn of all the *entire vehicle's* predictive features (I think this is on a per-profile basis, but not sure) using:
(Car Icon) > General > Intelligent Suggestions

Haunted? I didn't see that as an option. I want a haunted car 👻

I've noticed that since the OTA update it has got much better about guessing where I'm going--at least the suggestions make more sense now.

Mine just popped one of these up for the first time this morning (dropping my kid off at school). Surprised me. And it nailed the location, even if the business name it pulled up was strange (another business in the same building), so it threw me for a moment.
