Take a Street View Drive with Google Maps

I think there must be a rule in the automotive industry that you can't have an advertising campaign for a car without featuring Google Maps Street View. It seems it is is Peugot's turn to create an impressive Street View application to promote the Peugot RCZ.

RCZ View is an application that allows you to create any route in Google Maps and then watch a Street View stop motion animation of your created route. It takes a little while for the application to grab the Street Views for a route but it is worth the wait.

If you want to save a little time you can just watch the preprogrammed routes.

Hat-tip: Street View Funny

Pity my journey ignored a no right turn sign, then did part of my journey on the wrong side of the road facing the wrong direction so it appeared to be traveling backwards

Not worth it, image quality sucks...

Yep, takes too long and very blurry. Waste of time! :(

Anonymous said... (previously mentioned on Google Maps Mania, I think) also does Street View movies, w/o the ads and with the ability to modify your route on a Google Map by dragging points along the route.

In the future, when robots take command, this will be the view we see from the back seat of cars driven by computer minds.

1) braking at the very last second
2) jerky energy-efficient rides

In short: no thanks, damn robots
