    Do you need BB maps in order to use this application?

    It won't do it for every search, I tried searching for Starbucks and if I select the street near my house, there is no option there. If I selcect a street over, you'll see a yellow person icon on that street and within the search it will say "Street View." So it looks like they didn't take pictures of every street yet, but hopefully they'll complete full cities with street views for us to look at.

    I scored a license plate number off one of my searches, scarry!

    the images appear to be about a year old (my husband was in the process of building a privacy fence and it's half way done in the images)

    OK, I'm liking the street view, cool how you can expand it to full screen and use the trackball to rotate the view . The only problem is that it would not fine my location until I had BB maps or Telenav find it first. But then the accuracy was spot on! In satelite view I could see it even had me in the exact right part of my house I'm also not having the problems I was with BB maps as I was having when I installed the last version. I still like the voice directions with telenav so will keep that too....

    Great update, thanks for pointing it out Justyn

    This is totally sweet! I love the full-screen view. (P.S.-I deleted BB Maps a loooooong time ago...kind of useless when VZW locks GPS.)

    The street view dose not work in all areas. The street view is only available for areas that has street cameras that allows Google to access those footage.

    To find out which area has street view in you hometown; use google maps online and click street view and zoom out. All the street that has blue line over the street has street view, the ones that doesn't have a blue line dose not have a street view.

    Thanks for the info. I can't believe that they don't have street view for any part of Seattle yet they have little towns along the way. What a let down....
