    I just now noticed it despite having the beta.

    Drop a pin in Google Maps or search for an address. Then tap the little orange guy beside the pin's pop-up.

    yea, i noticed this last week. i'm glad they finally put it in there. you can also change your transportation method when getting directions. you can chose between a car, bus, or walking

    This more or less confirms the 3rd generation touch will have built in GPS.

    woh, the street view works SO smooth. flawless, even better than on a computer.

    And if you want to move further down the road in street view, just tap the arrow on the road.

    Neat, ever since getting my Sony phone with this feature I've wondered why Apple didn't support it. Good to see more features :)

    It is very fluid. Transitions are silky smooth and rendered very fast.
