Now all we need are the back roads photographed.  Google would have to get into some four-wheel action.  Unlike the Google camera-equipped vehicle shown in this link:

Google takes its map cam for a spin on biking, hiking trails

Now Google Maps is expanding to biking and hiking trails. A Google employee on a tricycle rides around to snap the same wide-area views.

Street Views appears to be a work in progress.  A lot of the shots along the highways are replicated.
