Version 5 is a full rewrite of the Dual Maps code. This version uses the latest Google Maps v3 API which is faster to load and offers better support for mobile devices.
The interface now has a tabbed menu bar to select which panels to view. An information panel has been added to display details and coordinates of the place marker and streetview marker.
Some v4 features have been removed to simplify the control. These include the choice of street view icons and the panoramio and traffic layers.
Version 5 has some useful new features such as the dynamic bookmark link which allows you to easily bookmark the currently viewed location.
You can also use a custom place marker icon and make the place marker draggable.
Please contact us if you require any additional functionality or have a custom mapping requirement.

To display a Dual Map with automatic streetview (the pegman will point towards the place marker) :
Omit the following parameters from the URL: slat, slng, sh, sp, sz
Note that the automatic streetview displayed is not always the nearest available streetview.
This is a limitation of the Google Maps API.
You can sometimes find a better street view by manually selecting the pegman location and heading.
