    i don’t know why, but i can’t trigger 3d mode. the “3d” button is not there in my maps. any idea? thanks!

    EDIT: nevermind, i have an iphone 4. you need at least an iPhone 4s (or iPad 2) to use the 3d features. bummer.

    Dropping Street View is a major step backwards. I can’t believe they’ve done this. Really don’t need flashy 3D aerial views that will no doubt lack coverage and be slow to render. And for all your “in depth” look at Maps app you don’t mention once that Street View has been stripped out of maps??

    I have to admit, this is a very impressive feat by Apple to
    Implement something this amazing and do it so seamlessly. I mean replacing something as good and integral to iOS as Google maps is hard, but to do it as well as Apple is, that’s something special

    Streetview is 1D. Flyover is 3D. You can pan the view down to roof level and swing the view 360° to see up and down the street in one swipe. You can’t do that in google map in iOS or in any OS. Until you see it, you really can’t comment. Judge it once you see it.
