How Do You Pronounce Route?

I just recently noticed that some of my friends pronounce the word "Route" as rüt while I feel more comfortable pronouncing it as rat just like how I pronounce "router" (ra-tər). Consistency issue perhaps and besides, I use American English and have a neutral accent. I just discovered that rüt is a British English pronunciation while rat is American English Pronunciation. 

Bottom line, both are acceptable. Its just like with the argument of the pronunciation of tomato and potato.

so, how do you pronounce "Route"?
