    So I pulled down the top and in the info it said it would take you 17 minutes to drive to work I clicked it and it was where I work.

    How does my iPhone know this is never put anything in?

    It just assumes, if you go there every day that it's your work or Mistress. I actually told mine in contacts that it's work. But you can disable the tracking if you want to. I know there was a stretch were I was working out of town every Saturday. So for a month after that, every Saturday morning it would tell me I have a hour and 40 minute drive to that location.

    In your contact, so you have your work address and home address? In setting for My Info, do you have said contact selected?

    I wonder if that's how. Guessing here...
