    Hi,

    I'm new of Android devices and I don't own an N8000 yet.
    I'd like to know if Google Street View works on N8000 using compass and gyroscope.
    Can I turn on my device and simply use it like an augmented reality to know where I am, what are streets name all around me and so on, just holding my tablet in front of my eyes?

    Thank you,

    T-

    Why would it not work?

    As I wrote, I'm new of Android.
    I know that "technically speaking" it is possible (find my position via GPS, compute "look at vector" with compass and gyroscope, render the proper view using those information) but I don't know if this is the way Street View works.
