          I'm a pro navigator, I diveler sailboats now, and find the new  Street View' feature surprisingly useful. Y'see, it's difficult getting people to create in their own minds a  feature-rich image' of a scene   a harbour entrance or the layout of a tiny anchorage   from conventional 2D paper/electronic charts.Here's an current example proving my point. I'm planning to take a sailboat from England down to St. Malo, in northern France. I've been there a score of times, and am quite happy navigating in along the several miles of reef-strewn aproach channel. Not so the boat's owner.He wants me to leave the boat securely moored in through the Rance tidal barrage. I've never been in there, so don't know which of the many tiny yacht harbours might be suitable. My wife is bringing a car over on a car ferry, but we need to identify a rendezvous point both she and I will recognise. Enabling  Street View' in the Layers menu gives me a vast choice of panoramic views, I can rotate 360 degrees, pick out a couple of likely spots, identify that there are similar boats already there ( with similar depth needs ) and agree a solution with the owner. Using the same panoramic feature allows me to show my wife exactly where the ferry-port exit slipway enters the public road system at a roundabout,spot a legal parking place with a cafe nearby, and agree a rendezvous she can find.What would have involved lots of mobile phone time can be reduced to a few previewed and stored images. Hell, some can even be loaded onto a little USB pen-drive and uploaded to a netbook on board. That'll help confidence when cold and tired, and in the rain, on the final approach to the anchorage at St. Servan,  cos we can't yet get across the tidal sill to the big marina with the showers ..Try it yourself. St. Malo. North France ( N48.38.05 W02.01.49 )  Have a look around .
