Hi Bert,
Moving this to the correct forum.
Have a look on this page: https://ggnome.com/doc/panel-google-street-view/
At the bottom where it says, External Links, it has a description.

Thanks Hopki for this link. Thats a very good overview to that topic.

I still dont understand what happened, when I fill this with a link. For excample, is it possible by this function to connect my tour to a working street view tour from Google?

Best regards!
Bert

Hi, Bert!

This lets you link to other tours...so you can connect to already existing tours.

For example, if you have tours of individual shops in a shopping center but you want to go from one shop to another, you can use this feature to connect the panoramas so you can move between those individual tours.

Hi Bert,
As Karyn says, you can only link to your own projects in your street view browser.
I know the question crops up time and time again about linking to Street View blue car/blueline.

The official is your starting node must be within 5 meters from the closest street view/blue line node.
Then that's it, over time Google will link to it.
But the reality is it does not work, or if it does it may break in a few weeks.

I know this is not very positive but my own experience is just this.
I built a tour and within a week it linked to the blue line, then after a few week, it unlinked.
It repeated this over three times and now unlinked for over a year.

Regards,
Hopki
