    When I try to get directions to an address I get the Apple map and then proceed to the -
    Drive - Walk - Apps - screen.

    When I select Apps I see the apps that can give me a directions.
    Google Maps, MapQuest, Waze

    I do get the "Route" option on any of these apps.

    Tried this with WiFi and the LTE network. Using these apps by themselves works fine.

    Any help in getting the "Route" option to show up would be appreciated. Thanks

    Clicking the three lines on the bottom right will show you the route. :)

    Thanks but I didn't explain it correctly. I want to "Route" into one of the other Apps.

    So I may want to route with the Apple Map and then decide to use the Google Map, going from the Apple Map screen.

    Try continuing to press on Route when you click apps. I just had to click route multiple times to finally get Google maps to open.

    I never get the "Route" option. It's blank for all 3 of the apps.

    Not sure what that is. from the map screen I select the Arrow on the top left.
    That takes me to the Drive Walk Apps screen
    The screen that shows the Drive Walk Apps has the blue line showing the route and a green and red pin.

    I select the Apps and I get the screen I uploaded showing 3 installed map apps but no ROUTE option.

    Almost seems to be an option on some Settings screen but I can't find anything.

    Appreciate your help

    You don't have the Walk option. Do you know how to get rid of that?

    Health app says I've walked 1,850 steps so I'm assuming it's set up.

    Siri will give you options for routing in other apps if you add "via transit" to the end of your request. For example, if you say "Directions to New York via transit" it will list all of your alternate maps apps (Google, Navigon, Waze, etc.) and you can select one. From there it will route in that app upon opening. If you don't say "via transit," it just opens Apple maps.

    Thanks Europa but using Siri also brings me to the "Drive Walk Apps" screen option and after selecting Apps I get the mapping apps but there is no option to select "Route"

    This is interesting. I've usually preferred to use Google Maps, Waze, and occasionally Mapquest. Today was my first time opening Maps since updating to iOS 8 and I was surprised to see only one route option listed for a familiar route to a destination that's about 45 minutes away. The Maps app only shows the shortest route that happens to include a section on a toll roll while the others gave me 3 routes including that toll road segment. Am I missing something with respect to the routing options that had formerly been available in Maps?

    AdvTHANKSance

    PS: I was also surprised that iOS now looks for other mapping apps into which you can open you routing search.
