    So what is that ?

    Looks like a company location to me.

    And wiht my phone, Google always knows where I am. You can actually ask Google where I am, get it, and then ask me for a photo.

    Nothing of my area yet, but they're close... There's street view coverage just a dozen miles or so to my East and West.

    if you type an addy into google maps and choose 'street view' - and see blue highlighted streets then your area has been cammed. at that point you can zoom in til you get a pic of the location.

    it is in major cities across the country (and their burbs); but in no way is it extensive coverage of the US (yet).

    ps hope you're feeling better!!

    Nice, it brought up a house down the street, so they have the address wrong. No street level view, and the sat pic has to be at least two years old
