You should be able to choose New Route (or something worded similar) from the nav screen and then select the number of miles you'd like to change the route for. Essentially it will rejoin your current route after X number of miles if that will result in the fastest route.

I've used this several times and it works rather well. You just have to have an idea as to how much traffic is ahead of you and how many miles it would take to bypass it.
