"Next Waypoint" and "Distance to Next" showing distance to next TURN

Is there a way to REMOVE the "turn by turn" directions that Garmin Connect embeds in a course? When I use the "Next Waypoint" and "Distance to Next" data fields it shows me the next TURN instead of my desired "Next Aid Station" as marked on Garmin Connect. I'd love to see the distance remaining to my next aid station and the aid station name displayed on my watch. But I don't get this until I complete all the turns leading to it.
