    It's an impressive feat. But I rarely use it tbh. If I'm driving somewhere tricky then I might familiarise myself, but rarely.

    I used to be on street view, walking back from the shops near where I work. Not any more. Progress? Pah.

    There should be a drop-down in the top left to view earlier images... I use it often at work.

    It's next to a clock icon that says StreetView, which opens a mini-pic and a date slider beneath.

    Re: Google Maps Street View covers >10 million miles of roadway

    Stopped using it other then when I truely have to. I find the interface terrible to maneover around and getting from maps to streetview seems to be very hit and miss, sometimes the icon is there, other times it isn't.

    Just F5 it.
    I use it a LOT at work, as it's far easier than driving 120 miles just to look at a manhole. It's not bad, long as you have fast internet... and preferably a mouse. Trackpad sucks.

    I wonder how many open wifi networks they found in the process.
