I'm unable to switch to the street view when using the Google maps on my android phone. I updated the Google maps to the latest version and also the street view but unable still though. I turned off the satellite view and tried but the street view was still disable. I tried to finding informative videos regarding this and some forums but they didn't helped me. I would really appreciated if any one help me about this.

To make absolutely sure that street view is disabled because of your hardware, try to access street view on a street in a major city. There are some streets where street view hasn't been captured. These are usually back streets in small towns. – ctt Apr 7 '12 at 1:15
@ctt it is not supporting anywhere for me. – avirk Apr 7 '12 at 2:08
Working ok for me on same handset, might be down to the fact I have ICS on it... – t0mm13b Oct 4 '12 at 23:42

Most probably, Street View imagery is not available for your location (yet).

  • Cross check the web version with any PC for the same location that doesn't work on your phone
  • Check a well-supported Street View location such as Google HQ on your phone

It may take a couple of second for the Street View button to become enabled. Just leave the button for up to half a minute?

I leaved it at least for 1 minute but the button still disabled. :( – avirk Apr 14 '12 at 11:16

Check the tables of supported countries on Wikipedia. Most likely, Street View is not yet available where you live.

That is not an answer by referring to a linky to wikipedia - suggest you re-edit your answer! – t0mm13b Jan 15 '13 at 16:19
