Finally I can see the 3D version of Microsoft Live Search Maps on my Mac. The newly-released Parallels v4 supports the 3D plug in for Firefox and Internet Explorer. It’s been a long time since I last used Live Maps so it was quite exciting to see the progress that’s been made. 3D buildings in Manhattan for example are stunningly rendered.

I definitely recommend the upgrade to Parallels 4 which seems to offer a great many improvements over the previous version. Parallels has always been an essential application for me since I rely on Memory Map and to my knowledge, there is no Mac equivalent for route planning with digital OS maps.
