Following the iPhone 2.2 upgrade, the video below shows the Street View feature which is quite impressive.

Google developed the mapping system by getting people to drive around the country with cameras on top of their cars. What is so great about it is not only can you view the place as if you were there but also you can look up and down which is quite neat. Also see our iPhone photo gallery.

Google Street View

Street View takes you on a virtual walking tour: Navigate street-level photographs of places you’ve located in Maps.

Public Transit and Walking Directions

Get walking directions, find public transit schedules, check fares, and estimate your travel time.
