    I know the iPhone tracks your movements and locations and I know in the past if I have something in my calendar with an address it usually shows up in notifications/today with a "it will take you this long to get to such and such"

    Today, I looked at the "today" pulldown menu. I usually go to my parents house on Saturdays, I never put it in my calendar. And I looked and it said, "it would take you about 5 minutes to drive to" and listed my parents address. My parents address is separate from my own address, so thats even wierder. I know of course, that if I take a trip somewhere, usually in the today pulldown menu it lists the time it would take to get "home". But this isn't even my home.

    Its just a place I visit every weekend.

    Is this a new feature?

    Somewhere along the way you ok'ed the phone to track your 'frequent locations'.

    I forget exactly where the setting is - either in maps or settings app - but, you should be able to kill that.

    Yeah, it's frequent locations. I believe that was introduced in iOS 8 (if not perhaps 7).
