As the title says. You can now "visit" about 20 towns and cities in the UK, and several areas of rural roads too, including a big chunk of country lanes south-east of my city, Norwich. With such wholesale coverage, has anyone spotted anything interesting, or just weird?

My house (in Norwich) is cut in half on it! they've obviously stuck 2 pictures together and its gone wrong! it also says my house is number 4 when its actually no. 60 so they've got a lot of the addresses wrong as well!

My sisters house in London has got an extra floor on it as well, they've added the loft on twice.
Its a great feature though and I've not found any other problems with it, just hope it gets expanded soon! i find it weird that some big cities like Brighton and Exeter don't have it but they've got the lanes round Norwich!

My apologies. I was actually asking when Version 2 would be out.

Google Streetview has made its debut in the Netherlands too. Apparently the camera vehicle caught a topless woman unawares. Being of the other persuasion, I haven't taken the trouble to look for her  

edit = spelling
