Just saw an article about a new google maps feature that lets you do a 3d preview of your route.

Just go into google map, plan a route between 2 points and then click the 3d preview button

Pretty cool.

Or actually... no I havn't seen this. What I was talking about is if you go into street view and right click and click "3D Mode On" you can get a 3D street view (so if you have 3D glasses trees and stuff pop out of your screen). It works great for caching. I like this new feature you pointed out!!!
