Weird elastic band rear armrest

When you fold down the rear armrest, there is an elastic band with a plastic clip that has what appears to be a "book" icon on it.

Any idea what it's for?

It's to hold up the center armrest if you have a rear facing car seat in the middle.

Re: Weird elastic band rear armrest

I can't believe OP missed it in the owner's manual.

Vehicles With A Center Arm Rest Tether
For rearward facing infant seats secured in the center seat
position with the vehicle seat belts, the rear center seat
position has an armrest tether that secures the arm rest in
the upward position.
1. To access the center seat arm rest tether, first lower the
arm rest. The tether is located behind the armrest and
hooked onto the plastic seat backing.
2. Pull down on the tether to unhook it from the plastic
seat backing.

Re: Weird elastic band rear armrest

When you get your Owner’s Manual, you will be able to look at page 7 for what icons mean, and page 95 for an explanation of the “Vehicles With A Center Arm Rest Tether”.
