Google Maps Car Spotted in Miami

October 27, 2010 By Gus in Miami: Local NewsTechnology  | 2 Comments


Attention Miami motorists, be on the lookout for the Google Maps car. We spotted her mapping the streets, twice this week. She’s not hard to miss. The car is a blue Subaru Impreza, with a basketball size orb, mounted on the roof. The orb contains nine directional cameras for the 360° views and a GPS unit for positioning and laser range scanners.


The first time we saw the car was Monday at Biltmore Hotel, while on The Original Miami Sightseeing Tour, and I really hope she snapped a picture of our bus.

Don’t know why, but I get so excited when I see anything Google-related!

Good thing it has a sign that says Google, otherwise it would be just another strange car on South Fla’s roads! wink

Good thing! When I was checking out SoBe on google earth/maps I got to SoFi and thought it was a bad area based on images. I just looked at one page though..really my fault..but yeah if it’s a ritzy area don’t include the homeless guy on a bike being followed by a skinny dog!
