We've made a tweak to this so that when you activate the Split Screen Street View, it now shows the point on the route nearest to the middle of the map when, unless the end of the route is visible on the map, in which case it will show that instead. Thanks again for the feedback Brian.
Perfect; much easier to use.
Is there any chance of another tweek in relation to this feature; is it possible to make the steetview image look along the road by default rather than look to the side as it does at the moment?
It should be doing this already - see this demo video:
The view should point in the direction of travel based on the last 2 points plotted.
I think there may be a bug in this feature; certainly for me I always see an image at right angles to the road ahead; ie I am always looking at a hedge or the like. Happy to send some screenshots / route examples for you to look at. Please advise?
That's odd, as it works OK here, as you can see in the demo video. Can you give me an example of a route you plotted where this happens? Also, can you let me know what browser you are using please and which Map Type and Auto-Plot settings you have selected?
I love the look of the Street View Split Screen! Well done!
But I was wondering if you could clarify how it works, exactly.
I was wondering whether the street view and the map will operate in sync so that when you start the route, the street view will automatically follow the route as the cursor follows the route or must you drag the cursor all around the route, manually.
Hi Glenn - glad you like this feature. Yes, the Street View will automatically refresh as you plot your route when in split-screen mode, so you can see the road ahead. It won’t change if you drag the map, but you can manually choose a new Street view by dragging the pegman (below to zoom buttons) onto a new road.
You can see a demo of this in action here: https://youtu.be/jSwEHdJ6l7Q
I have already created a route and I want to replay the route with the split screen showing street view. When I hit the start button will the street view be showing at the same speed as that of the advancing cursor?
Automatic refresh of street view during route playback insn't currenlty feasible, as internet connections aren't fast enough to download the images in time.
