How to tell where Google has Street View

iFit interfaceWe understand. It's no fun working out on iFit without street view. But how do you know if they area you're mapping has street view or not. There are several ways for you to check, but we'll just be showing you how to check through iFit.

Login to iFit.com from your laptop or desktop. When you create a map you'll go to:

  1. Create > Map Based Workout
  2. Give it a name, select run or cycle
  3. On the next screen enter the location or city name you want to map
  4. Switch the "Street View Availability" button to ON. All the blue lines are where Google has captured Street View.

Now zoom in or out and draw along the blue lines shown on the map. These blue lines are where Google has captured street view.
