One of the many new features in iOS 5 is also the ability to select multiple routes in Google Maps. Here's a screenshot showing 3 different routes between two locations that can be used.

Thanks Andrew and Nate

This would be great if it worked for me.

Have you tried changing the view? Maybe it has a cache?

Id also like the feature maps.google.com has, where you can drag the route to avoid/approach desired areas. Perfect for touch.

That would be nice, and handy

I think this app (along with YouTube) would be updated more often if they weren't default Apple apps.

Personally hoping for bicycle routes myself, but looking at the screenshot it seems unlikely. Equally unlikely is the possibility that someone in charge of the feature set is looking at this comment and considering the change, but I might as well try.

That would be great, I ride my bike all over colorado spring and hate have to zoom way in or scout out the road ahead of time to see if there's a good bike route.

Use Safari and go to maps.google.com and you can get the bike routes. It will also let you save an "App" icon to the screen.

To be honest, although the Android version of Google Maps and YouTube are updated more regularly, they don't have a lot more functionality.

You have to wonder how something so useful took so long

Perhaps you could tell us how to do it a long time ago so it wont take that long

Take a look at the Garmin Edge 800. It specifically creates routes for bicycling and can re-route on the fly. I love my iPhone, but when I'm on the bike, the Edge works great.

It would be better if it were better implemented at other countries.

Paying $500 for something I want for free kinda defeats the purpose of whining.

Actually no, because dragging somewhere on the map currently moves you around. I think many people would be confused/frustrated when they will drag to move to somewhere and the route will have changed.
