I’m not an iPod Touch owner, but from what I understand, the recent 2.2 firmware update killed the Street View feature in the Maps app (even though it’s available in the iPhone update). Weird.

Turns out there’s already a 2.2 Jailbreak released from the iPhone-Dev team, and as you can see from the photo above, timmyj9 from the iPod Touch Fans forum sorted out a quick hack that enables the missing Street View functionality.

Aside from Jailbreaking your device, the hack only involves making a minor XML update.
