Yup, confirmed.

I typically don't use this mode so I had to go out to my car and try it out.

When I hit CD-6, it jumps into Direct mode and text from the iPod is no longer displayed on the HU.

The iPod displays the song info just like it is not plugged at all. The << & >> buttons still work.

On the HU display it alternates between CD 6-nn where nn is the track number & the word "Direct".
