    Instant Street View is an acceptable alternative to what the old (Classic) Google Earth Street View used to be before they "new and improved" it. However, it does not have a ruler on it, so in order to find distances from one point to another, you must still go into a different map, or Google "Distance from Point A to Point B" and find out from there. I can't see the point of having a map without a ruler on it and sadly, writing to them does no good at all. Also it would be great if they were to make it fullscreen, but that I can live without...just, Please, put a ruler on it!
