    Can someone please tell me a quick way to see landmark photos on Google Maps? For instance, when I want to see what a business looks like or someone's house or whatever, I now do it by going to directions, putting in the address, then pulling up the map and then clicking the finish line and THEN it will show me a pic of it. Is there any quicker way to do this? I figure there has GOT to be and I'm just missing it lol Thanks! :)

    You can just long press anywhere on the map and you'll get a popup with the address or intersection you're pressing. Tap the popup and you'll get a list of options including navigate, get direction, and if available at that location, "street view".

    You're welcome. I found that by accident myself. One of the best ways to find out how to do stuff with the droid is touch it, press it, short or long - until it does what you want! lol

    Hahaha yeah, I've learned that too - don't know why I didn't think of it for this! Instead I kept pressing the "menu" key (also a good one) trying to find that option. Thanks again! Droid rocks!!! :)
