A9 is launching their own mapping service which features street-level photos. With street-level images it is easier to recognize and find where your destination is. This way you have a restaurant or gas station (for example) to look for instead of an address. A9 has block view images for cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Boston etc. The picture above is a street-level picture of Hollywood Blvd. Use A9
