There is a compass mode, you just have to be in street view first to have it work.
With just plain street view you have to use the touch screen or the trackball to move the view around.
But with compass mode....you just have to move the phone and the accelerometer knows which way you're facing, and adjusts the picture to match. Tilt the phone up, and you see the sky and tops of buildings, tilt it down, and you see the road.
