Problem: The first panorama shows up but I cannot click anywhere to jump to another panorama.

Solution: The file size of the panoramas is between 0.7 and 1.5 MB you will only be able to jump to another panorama if the whole file is downloaded. Depending on you internet connection that might take several minutes. Just give it some time.

Please do not hesitate to send me an email if this help page does not solve your problem.
