Map app on the iPhone - how to avoid highways?

Hey all,

I don't know if I am missing something, but is there a way I can use the iphone map app (the one that is built in) so that it avoids highways? I know the regular google map has the avoid highways option, but I'm not seeing any option for that in the iphone app version. Is it possible?

Well, in actuality, I don't want to avoid all highways, but just avoid the highway 407 so that I don't have to pay the toll. I live near it, so whenever I go up north the app always uses the 407, which is very annoying.

Thanks in advance.

Hmm I actually didn't think of this. That really sucks, lol!

I'd give google an email so they can put out a new version or something.
