The only way to scroll through directions in Maps is if you search for a route that is not from your current location. If from current location, it will not scroll, but if you search for a route from two different locations you can scroll, actually swipe, along the different turns.

Ok, that appears to be the case.
However, why is the Swipe feature only available when not using your Current Location? I would really like the Swipe feature to be available regardless of the method of search (Current Location versis typed location).
It appears that cetain functionality is mutually exclusive.
If inputting two locations locations, Swipe feature available but not turn-by-turn voice navigation or ETA statistics.
If using Currentl Location, just the opposite features are available.
All these features should be available all the time. Seems like a great feature.

Thanks - I just submitted it as a Design/Ease of Use feedback for iPhone 4s v 6.0.1
Others should/can do the same if you want this added - I think it makes using Maps, SAFER because the User can preview the navigation and only glance over at the Map View for a refresher while dealing with traffic.
