I was on self isolation from early March until a couple of weeks ago.

Now that I'm back at work (self-employed whitevanman) I have disovered that Google Streetview no longer works on my iPad Pro or iPhone 11. Looking on tinternet I can only find minimalistic comments that it's not working, but no solutions.

Anybody know anything? It is so helpful to use finding delivery addresses when I'm at the back of beyond. At present, my only solution/workround can be to take laptop and wifi dongle which is a bit much.

Hi Dennis,

I use the Google Earth app on my iPhone 6s Plus (iOS 13.6).

Tao in the Street View 'person' icon and all roads that have Street View are highlighted in blue, tap on the location and you get Street View. Same on my iPad.

Sorry, I'm in a rush ... off to work now. If you need any further help I'll have a look tomorow. Thumbs Up

Regards,

I used to use Google Earth, until they brought out Google Maps. It has served me very well. Tap and hold to drop a pin, then call up Streetview (which, incidentally also showed a date of the Streetview image) to scroll along a road looking for the house number etc that I wanted.

I have tonight discovered that if I click on the map, a dropped pin wonít let me call up Streetview. But if I then type search for the address which the dropped pin identifies, then I can call up Streetview. However, this solution is not infallible, doesnít always work.

A search on the App Store for Google Earth revealed a host of results. Iíve downloaded GE but it really isnít as easy as Google Maps.
