    So, I'm in the process of planning a trip to Norway and I like to check out some of my routes using Google maps street view to get an idea of what the route will look like. I've always thought, why can't I just view all the street view pictures in order along my route rather than clicking each time to move further down the road. Well, yesterday I was searching around for something like this and found a really cool website that will do that exact thing. It even lets you configure how fast to view the route and how far to step through each segment. It looks like there are other options to tweak but I haven't totally checked it out yet. Anyway, thought I would share.

    Whoops! First post and I've already screwed it up.. Link should have been:

    Looks pretty cool, but what an awful UI. Maybe it's my browser, but I can't make any changes to my route without it reverting back to Hackney Road to Olympic Park. Grr.

    I'm gonna play with it some more.

    I think you can use the "Draggable Route" option to do that?

    Hey thanks for sharing....it's really neat following the path while you see pic's of the surrounding area.
