"Get current view" doesn't show up in my SU8 version...can't find it anywhere ....also there is no "terrain" layer in GE that I can turn on.....am I losing my mind!!

In SU8, it's been changed to an 'Add Location' icon from the Google toolbar. It's now a dialogue box within SU too, rather have it having to import it from GE. :)

And in GE, the terrain toggle has been moved to the options (so it is not a "layer" any more). But as Lee says, there is no need for GE any more to grab a location.

Nowhere. It's always "on" by default. There is this little dude under your navigation. Simply drag him on the street (or zoom in enough) to automatically get into SV. As an extra bonus, now you can walk through the 3D Layer as well (and where there is no SV, this is where the fellow gets by default).

Rather annoyingly though, you can't zoom in when using SV in GE anymore, it's still available via googlemaps though, so if you're wanting images for photo-texturing, you will need to do a screen print. Apparently the driving experience of the new GE is incompatible with zooming.
