    I was playing with Google Maps after the 2.1 update and on one occasion for a trip a screen came up that listed (3) different routes with the total miles and time for each route. One was for I295, one for I95, and one was for US202.

    Since then I can't seem to replicate that screen. Any answers? Suggestions?

    UPDATE: Found the answer.

    After selecting Navigate for a route, click Menu and a screen will come up with (3) symbols on the bottom. Left most one is the Symbol for Navigate, the symbol with a couple of arrows is the one to PRESS. This will give alternate route info that you can select.

    UPDATE AGAIN

    When I tried again, the option I mentioned above was greyed out and no longer works. I'm not sure what is going on. Oh well!

    Nice find. I hadn't looked for it, but glad to know it is there.

    I was playing with Google Navigation the other day. A highway (I275) was closed so I opened up GNav and it told me to take I275. Tried the alternate route function and all three routes took me on I275 with the alternate route coming after that.
     
  4. maybe google is soo smart they know there is no alternate route!!! ;)

    Not sure because i have not used that feature yet, but it probably means there are no other route choices
