I am loving the Google Navigation, but as someone who constantly has to navigate New York City traffic, its quite a pain in the a** to have to go through the number of screens necessary to get to the alternate route button. As well as dangerous (since I am driving at the time)

I have noticed that every now and then it is displayed on the map itself....but not always.

Anyone find a way to get it to stay on the navigation screen all the time...so it's simply tap and choose the route you want...instead of the MENU - ROUTE INFO - ALTERNATE ROUTE way of doing it?
