What are the steps before that? Specifically, on what screen exactly do you press Menu?
On what device are you doing this? What Android and Maps versions? Stock? Rooted?
I found it! You have to go into navigation first though. Then Menu, and then hit the alternate route icon (Should be 3rd from the bottom). It would be nice if you didn't have to go into Navigation first but oh well.
