Google Maps is one of the most popular location finding applications currently on the market. In addition to the recently released Latitude Tracking facility, Google has now addressed the headline feature present in Google Maps - StreetView. This feature takes the viewpoint of the Maps service right down to a first-person point of view - at a street level, in fact - giving the application an imminently practical slant. It's not only of use for location finders but also for tourists, home buyers and nosey parkers.
Now, this user-friendly addition to the Maps facility has been launched in the UK, according to the All About Symbian website. It does not cover the entire mainland but particular major cities. Areas include Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Dundee in Scotland; Swansea and Cardiff in Wales and several cities in England including London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Portmouth. You can access the StreetView by pointing to your require street and pressing the D-pad.
