[iPhone] I lost Street View icon guy on iP5!

What the hell did I do? Must be some silly Setting I mistakenly hit?
Anyways, yes, Location Services are ON for Safari and I'm using iOS 6.0.1 and created an "Add to Home Screen" from maps.google.com. It used to work, even for my house but now... the Street View guy in bottom lower right isn't even showing up for it, or anywhere.

Any ideas?

It worked in the web app and not the pre-iOS 6 native app?

I'm lost. Answer me this, can you guys see the Street View icon guy in the bottom right corner WHEN USING YOUR IPHONE 5? I used to see it 2 weeks ago but haven't used gmaps again until today and it doesn't show anymore.

Shows up on my iPhone 5. Try touching somewhere on the map to drop a pin.

I can't even manually drop a pin anymore either! Very strange.

I just tried your location too and it works. So it must be something isolated to your device. Have you tried the obvious stuff like clearing the cache, cookies, etc? Try going to Settings > Safari > Advanced > Website Data and either clear all or delete all the ones related to Google and try again.

LOL @ your avatar.

Congratulations, you are only the second person to ever mention it!

Thanks Pike, yes, I had deleted cookies but your jogging of my memory made me think of rebooting this time. It worked!!! I needed to reboot after clearing cache etc... just like a dumb PC. LOL Thanks man and kudoed!
