If you're an iTouch user contact Apple here: http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipodtouch.html and them that it is unacceptable that we do not get the new features released with Google Maps. (Street View, Walking Directions, Transit)

I may be being a bit special, but I can't work out how to get Street View in maps? How do I do it? I'm in the UK is that an issue?
