UK Postcode Search


I have successfully downloaded the UK map and my satnav is reading it fine but there is now no option to search by postcode when I try to enter a destination. Is there a way round this?
I used Generic Routable map, would the Generic Routable (new style) allow postcode search?

Thanks everyone

Re: UK Postcode Search

Probably not. The UK style of postcode search for an address is rather unusual and I dont think that a) anyone has enabled the Garmin file for it; or b) made any postcodes available.

There is this hack approach: … _On_Garmin
