Hey, I just recently found out about this, and I think it is quite cool :> When you go to Google.com, you can pick between Internet, pictures, maps and some other stuff, top left. Click on 'Maps'.
Then, in the search field, you type any street you want to view. For now, I'll just type my own :>
Just type street name and zip code, then click "Search in Google Maps".
Then you click on the "A" and you see this:
Now click on Street View.
Then you can navigate around, either by clicking the arrows, or just double clicking the place you want the 'camera' to move to :>
Now, I'm just gonna click the arrows untill I get to the end of my street.
If you want to go the other way, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to scroll around with, and use the Scroll on your mouse to zoom in/out.
So now, I just turned around and is ready to go the other way on my street :>
As I said earlier, I just recently found out about this and since I found it quite cool, I just wanted to share it with you =)
