I remember that somebody on German forum said that Street View was being removed or would be removed soon.

Me wonders why... maybe it was not fast enough and the user experience was bad..? Any idea?

I have my sat nav hooked up to a network and street view is also greyed our in the UK. I can’t find a way to turn it on. Street view is banned in Germany by the govt there but there’s no legal reason to ban it in the U.K. anyone know why it’s not working? If not I will ask skoda.

I've sent the question to Skoda Customer Services but no response yet.

Maybe it's a lisencing thing rather than a legal thing, or that we in the UK are caught up in the German legalities.

So, just had a call from a chap at Skoda UK Customer Services.

He's confirmed that Google Street View is no longer supported through Skoda Connect so even though it appears in the pop-up dialogue when you click on the map, it will _never_ work.

Google Earth overlay is still supported and works just fine...
