Avoid Highways not an option? cassi9879 12/11/11 9:06 PM
URL (if applicable):Summary of Issue:  Why aren't "avoid highways/toll roads" an option anymore on the Maps app for Android?  From earlier inquiries I see this was on 4.2 but not 6.0.

It is kind of hidden now.
- Create the routing directions
- Press the icon at the bottom left corner of the map to bring up the list of turn-by-turn instructions
- Press the setting button on your phone
- Press the Route options icon.

I've seen this myself, and it seems to be an issue for some devices even now on version 6.8.1 of Google Maps (not Navigation).
On my phone, a Samsung Captivate, the menu button on the directions list page shows "Route options" along with "Reverse", "Update route", and "Report a problem."
On my friend's LG Optimus S, the menu button on the same page only shows "Reverse" and "Report a problem."

Any ideas why it would differ by device?
Thanks.

Check if there is any difference in Android version if the Maps version is the same.
I am using Android 2.3.6.
