    I work for a company that use a couple of Ipads for the Sales Manager & Director in the office so when they are out and about they can access photos of previous works etc, as I am not the main user of these and mainly PC based I have had to come to you guys for help as I get asked all sorts of questions. The two users who are even worse than myself asking me technical questions, sometimes I can answer them with the help of google and other resources but I am completely stumped with the latest and wondered if anyone could shed any light on the latest situation.

    Recent (a few months ago) we completed the dread upgrade to IOS6 which knocked out our Goole maps :mad: as a construction company this App or item was extremely useful as it allowed us to visit the site in question without actually going to the property for initial assesments and the most valuable item was street view. Does anyone know if this is up and running again, I have seen it is available on the Iphone 5 and somewhere it said also for the Ipad 3 but as yet I have not come across anyone who has explained that is is available again on the Ipad 2 and if so how to re-install it.

    Any help would truly be appreciated.

    Welcome to the iPad Forums! To add to Gabriel's post, street view is back and is part of the new Google maps app in the App Store.

    Hi ziggihaha, the google maps for iPhone does work but the definition is pretty poor. I use Google Maps on my iPad 2 which has street view, but only if you enter an actual address which drops a pin. http://maps.google.com/maps?dc=gbackstop#bmb=1
