Well I think this Street View is amazing !!! - I have just spent quite a while looking over old haunts in the UK, some world beauty spots and the Hondón area here in Spain !!

I even spotted my son in his mini from 2 years ago !!

How useful it is ??? Dunno ? Don't care - I can't believe the efforts Google go to for World Domination.

As for the Hondon Valley area well seems Hondon de Los Frailes, Aspe, La Canalosa is on but they missed Nieves for some reason - shame. But great how you can travel (for those near by) over the Mountain range into Albertera !!

Great!

I use it quite frequently to see where exactly I'm going if I've not been before. This has come in very handy to see exact street signs and lanes, to confirm the route google suggests is legal. I also use it to see if there is anywhere I can lock my bike up instead of trying to find a decent place once I arrive.
I just find it difficult to navigate, I´m sure it´s good to have a look to see how a cetain building/street/square, etc. looks like but what about ongoing roadworks or a newly added roundabout? I think it´ll be outdated very quickly.

Are your faces blurred out ?
There are quite a few people we know pictured around here, but the faces are blurred.
