Google Maps Tweening should properly set heading

Reported by David Seifried | May 19th, 2011 @ 09:44 AM | in 0.8 (closed)

Currently when using an auto generated route with Google maps Tweening, the heading is currently not set. This means that if the direction of the route changes along the tween, the orientation of the streetview camera is not changed to reflect this. This is not an issue for hard coded points, as the user can set the heading themselves. With auto generated points on the other hand, the user does not have the ability to set the heading for each point. After further looking into the google maps API I found that this information is available to us, so why not take advantage of it.

Essentially the streetview camera should stay aligned with the road throughout the users tween, rather then staying stationary as its doing now. Here is an example of what it is currentyl doing in action:
