When looking for directions, Google Maps says "first of three suggested routes." It shows the first, but I can find no way of finding out what the other two suggested routes are. I've searched the screen and can see no way. How do I do it?

iPhone Screenshot

Yes, I know this isn't an iPad screenshot, but I don't currently have iOS 5 on my iPad :). Regardless, the function is the same, you can tap the route labels in order to view the alternative routes. You may need to zoom in or out to see them.
