Be nice to have a little person to drag onto map for street view. Save me from switching back and forth to Google. What would it take to go to Google, Microsoft, or another interactive street view map? Downside to Google, it doesn't show interstate exit numbers.

Geooh GO has a little man icon on the map to show Street View for a selected cache without exiting the app.

That requires a subscription (albeit a very small fee), and you can't do it on desktop, only mobile, so it would be cool if they had that on geocaching.com or some other website.

Are you aware Google charges apps and websites for Street View panoramas?

Street view is an awesome feature on google maps but  can compromise certain types of geocache a little bit. 
I have a few teamwork multi caches across countries where you need to find a virtual stage in the form of numbers on a sign and we were quite limited in what signs we could pick since street view is prevalent. We ended up mostly going to disc golf courses. Elsewise someone could solve these international teamwork caches without teamwork and without leaving their country.

That is a rare exception though, typically street view poses no threat and just helps people research an area before they travel there to cache. It would be a pretty cool feature.
