 Has anyone built a Sreetview Intent?

I tried the following and don;t see what is wrong:

  String uriString =
                                Uri uri = Uri.parse(uriString);
                                startActivity(new Intent
(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri));

Anybody have any suggestions or a working snippet?

 The following code snippet works for me:

        Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse
("google.streetview:cbll=" + lat +
                "," + lon + "&cbp=1,180,,0,1.0"));

Note that street views are "narrowly" draw along streets.

 Thanks for the snippet,

Now I tried to mimic your example with the following code but it still
crashes when the button is pressed:

                button3.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener()
                        public void onClick(View v)
                                double lat = 44.640381;
                                double lon =-63.5759;
                                streetIntent     = new 
Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse
                                          ("google.streetview:cbll=" + lat +
                                                          "," + lon + 


I'll keep looking for another problem, as this Intent format looks OK.
I have a shaky wireless signal this evening and that couldn't help.

 ps. Hmm, maybe my lat/long are not specific enough. I entered the
coordinates for my house and I know there is a streetview site on the
street directly in front..With Google driving directions, it takes you
to the nearest road. |i figured streetview worked the same way. But
maybe you have to target the exact location of the camera icon. Does
anybody know?

 Another observation. When I went to the emulator's opening screen and
selected Mapsm then switched to Streetview mode on the menu, well it
brought up the thumbnail but then crashed when I selected it, the same
way as my app. I;m using 1.5r1 and maybe streetview needs a newer
version like 1.6 to work?
