Google Streetview LIVE in South Africa
Just got a tweet from @GaryMeyerza to say Streetview is working in South Africa, but so far only on the iPhone.
Google streetview was supposed to launch to the press tommorrow, but the event has been cancelled. If you use Google Maps on your iPhone, you will see it is working:
Here are 2 local streetview images I found:
If you want to test on your iPhone, do the following:
- Open Maps on the iPhone
- Switch to Hybrid view
- Drop a pin
- On the Left hand side of the pin info bar, is an orange icon, if this icon “lights up” you can click on it, and it will show you the streetview in that area.
This means it shouldn’t be too long before Google officially launch the full product on http://maps.google.com
Update: hmm, seems like someone at Google saw this, and turned it off :( Hopefully should be up soon
