    I discovered an option in street view that is called "Compass View"
    Not sure what use it is but I thought it was cool.

    You have to hold the phone in portrait as opposed to landscape for the compass to work...check it out.

    Here it is on the HTC Hero

    Skip to about the 1:00 mark to see him turn on compass mode.

    oh this is Compass mode LOL :D

    Sorry thought it was the Normal maps {not street view} you were on about and when you rotate the Phone the maps are heading the same Direction as you like a type of walking nav

    Thanks for linking the Video anyway! :)
