Google Streetview Spycar Spotted in Sheffield

July 15th, 2008 at 10:32 by Peter Jackson

Eagle-eyed staff here at Plusnet have spotted one of Google's Streetview spycars mapping out the streets of Sheffield.  As reported in The Register, the car has been previously spotted in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff - there can no be no doubt of Google's intention to add the UK into their Google Maps' Streetview.

Anyone not familiar with Streetview might be surprised at how fast and easy it is to use.. and how much detail is shown. Perhaps it won't be too long then before you can cruise up and down past Plusnet Towers from the comfort of your armchair.

Update: Be on the lookout for cars that look like this.

Have you decided to ditch the capital N in PlusNet?


LOL looks like the pedant might have been on to something here. Top marks for observation.

I managed to spot the Google car in Belfast about an hour after Phil's tweet. That thing must move fast!
