Microsoft is launching its own version of Google's StreetView - dubbed Streetside - across Europe.
Cars fitted with cameras have begun taking pictures around London and will start mapping major cities on the continent next month.
The service is already available in 56 US towns and cities.
Microsoft has been keen to avoid the privacy concerns that dogged Google's service but said that it does plan to gather wi-fi data.
Google ran into trouble with privacy groups while creating Streetview after it emerged the company intercepted and stored private information from some hotspots.

If your privacy can be breached just by a car passing down a public street then I think you may have some other issues to worry about.

If you're out in public, your privacy is long gone anyway.
