    Good question. As far as I know, that's the one thing Google Maps is lacking...ability to edit route. It can find alternate routs if you enter the navigation, but I haven't played with that much. Might not hurt to start it up and see.

    I've seen it on my computer, however checking my Droid I don't see it. I may have overlooked something.

    I have not seen that option either.

    Glad to know I'm not just missing something there.

    Side note: I like major highways. They're fast...

    What it really needs for the OP are some options such as:

    Avoid freeways
    Avoid toll roads
    Fastest route
    Shortest route
    Avoid traffic
    Etc...

    Route editing and better integration of routes created via My Maps in Google Maps (i.e. actually navigating such routes) would definitely be nice to have though.
