    I know you can add the words "via transit" at the end of you directions request in order to use google navigation via Siri. However, is there a tweak that allows Siri to take you directly to google navigation instead of taking you to a screen of maps apps and having to press the google nav button??

    Assistant Love. There might be a free alternative. Maybe MapsOpener will work with Siri? Try those. AssistantLove definitely works. It costs money though but it has a bunch more features than just google maps.

    I hear you. There might be other options too. Good luck!

    Installed and works rather well. Looks like it might be a battery burner though. Not sure if its the app or the fact that I'm playing with nav and Siri.

    Which tweak? AssistantLove? Jeff Benjamin swears by it and just recently did a big review on it. He didn't mention battery life. Sorry if I led you array. Stick with it for a little while and see how it plays out. It might be just cause ur using it so much. Sometimes these things settle down over time whether it be due to a recharge, respring/reboot, update, removal of a conflicting tweak, etc. If its bad on the battery try one of the others that are out there. Enjoy!

    Yea, I think that it was just me playing with it more than normal. Seems to have settled down now. Really appreciate you pointing that out to me. Have a good one.

    I have MapsOpener and it does not work with Siri. Anything I do from Siri opens to Apple Maps.
