Find out where the Street View cars are currently on the road

Google has just released a major update to their Street View site with a handful of great new features. Notice that this isn’t new imagery, but it’s still quite cool for a few reasons.
Along with greater detail about the various Street View vehicles and your privacy, they’ve added an oft-requested feature: where the cars are currently driving. People often ask when imagery for their city will be updated, and now we get a nice glimpse at the answer.
Beyond that, you can learn the details of how the imagery from cars gets converted to Street View or check out their gallery of locations, which includes some amazing views.

  1. Welcome information. Google should do more like this, for example to give background on GE layers.
    Although it’s difficult to judge how much new SV imagery is being created in a country, it looks like we will be seeing Belgium for the first time, expansion of coverage in France, Italy and Spain, and updates (?) in Ireland and the UK. But significantly “no driving” in Germany – perhaps all those opaque privacy screens cost too much.

  2. Is there a way to find out when the Google Street car will be back around to take more updated photos? Specifically I was looking for Austin TX for a client that renovated a hotel and would like this reflected.

  3. Hi,
    Just wondered if the Google Car will go down Harper St, Tinonee, NSW? – i also noticed it hasn’t been though Tinonee in 4 years.


  4. I’m starting to get some traction on my blog where users submit photos everytime they sight the google street view car. Hoping it will catch on:

    Hi Google Maps

    When will Cape Town and its suburbs be updated. Many changes occurred. I live in Wynberg, 17km from Cape Town and many changes occurred there as well.

    Is there also any way I can help.

    • you can do this update!.. take photos of all places you wanted, using a variety of devices… that would links to a Google account, and will be able to do sharing to mapas at any smartphone or computer!
      . But mostly easy and convenient way, were from you mobile, just take a photo of the place of wish, and sharing strength away to maps, and Google update you placed photos!.. YEP Hoo, bingo, but set up your account Google maps settings to update your photos to show on map!!.

  18. Myrna Berry says

    Why would the google car video my street 4 times in the past 5 years? My street doesn’t change…..same houses for over 15 years.

  19. Thais Santos says

    I have JUST seen one at Moore Ave, Baltimore, MD. I want to know when the photos will be updated so I can see myself scandalously waiving.

  20. I saw one in providence yesterday

  21. Street View car in Westlake, Ohio on October 12, 2015

  22. Thanks for all information

  23. When are you going to update your stree views images there are new roads in my area

  24. When will Google Vehicles come to Jamaica, W.I. or any of the Caribbean Islands? You guys did countries in South America but missed us.

  25. Richard Baylis says

    The feature to show where street view cars are currently driving is no longer available. I had bookmarked the page that is in the above link and often checked it in the hope of finding that they would be updating my area after many years. But you now get directed to a general information page Perhaps it was too difficult to keep it up to date with the current accurate information, but that’s a shame. I’d have thought it relatively easy to feed into the page automatically from whatever system they were using to manage the street view project. The previous owner of the property where I live requested it to be obscured and as they have no mechanism to request that is undone (or perhaps it isn’t non-destructive and can’t be) I’d really like to see the street view updated.

  26. When will I see this in Denver?

  27. The Google Maps Car was in Charlottesville, VA on January 21,2016

  28. Saw it in my street, Stirling North South Australia on December 2014 when working in garden. Waved as car drove past and now on street view.

  29. Suleman Adeyemi says

    Shall we see Google str car in Share, kwara state, Nigeria?

  30. Hope they change the oil often on that poor little google car.

  31. Braveenan says

    Hi Google maps
    When will you come Sri Lanka¿¿¿¿¿¿

  32. Hi there, I reside in the West Indies and request assistance in being knowing how to go about getting hired by Google to produce road images (street views) of the islands of the West Indies.

  33. Daishawn Ellerbe says

    The street view car should come to providence again in June.

  34. Hi Google…when will you take some photos of my street showing houses and gardens, not the Baron wasteland that it was last time you filmed. Holly Crescent, Sacriston, Durham, Uk. The grassy areas are now pretty houses.

  35. How often do you guys intend to revisit areas? I recently opened a new mechanic & repair workshop in Sydney Australia. As the building is a new building prospective customers cant find me on street view.

    • It depends the area, but you said you were in Australia, so it means the Google car is probably going to come soon…
