    Hello

    Im new to the driod less than a month. I was trying to use Goggle Maps and when I enter instructions the app will only give me directions on side streets, not the highway.

    I cant find the setting to change it to more direct route.

    Thanks

    My success in this process has only worked 1/2 of the time. It just depends on if there is a better or alternate route worth google searching for.

    In the navigation view press your menu button and press route info. it will show an overview of the route. on the bottom right of that screen is a button that has a horizontal line and a dotted vertical line. Press that, and it should bring up the alternate route info.

    IMO I don't think you find success with this if you are taking long trips. My suggestion is if you know a faster route take it and let the navigation reroute you. Its what I do.

    Hope that helps

    Thats exactly what I do, I just set the navigation then drive until I Im not sure where to go next, then follow the nav.. I wish it would find a way to learn shortcuts..

    Or better yet learn from your driving patterns. If you drive freeway a lot then it takes you on the freeways, if you take side streets then maps shows the quickest side streets
