    Well, I looked mine up, and it kinda creeped me a bit, my car was in the open garage and my numberplates showing! Not comfortable with it.

    Not fussed really. A person driving past can see more. If it was live footage then I would be careful.

    They didn't map my street, so I don't care so much :p

    But yeah, it's kinda worrying that people can find where you live very very easily.

    Hmm it is just an upgrade from a 2D view. Also I can find your address easily enough if I know your surname and if you are listed in the phone book.

    Thats it, we aren't in the phone book, silent number. I dont like the fact I can see my car, in the garage with the door open.....with the right program anyone could 'clean up' the image and read my numberplates! I dont know, I just dont like the idea that someone can take a picture of my personal property and put it on the net without my permission.

    I'm not too fussed, but then again, I'm not terribly big on privacy. Anyone could probably find out who I am IRL easily enough.

    I guess that means if I mowed a message on the front lawn, like hello or maybe something more vulgar, you could see it on there.

    not crazy about the whole idea myself.

    What if I want to sunbath naked on my front lawn again?

    I guess the answer to that are the key words "front lawn". I keep my front garage door shut if I am up to anything in there. I use mine as a shed/workshop and not a garage.
