My Tom Ton Start 42, does not recognise some post codes in the South West Wales region. For example some areas of SA38 SA43 and SA48. How can this be fixed??

    Postcode + Street Name... Start 42/52/62 This is a long-standing problem....
    The Postcode code search bug when using the latest Start 42/52/62 devices is a real pain
    Any search for a Postcode... You have to enter a road/street name to execute a search ??? Why....
    If you know the road/street name and a house number you don't need the Postcode
    Most people use a Postcode because they don't know the road/street name and house number
    Isolated farms, Single building, Office blocks, Retail parks, Hospitals, New builds etc...
    For me, it renders the latest Start device useless in the UK

    It's only the latest Start 42/52/62 Range that has this particular Step by Step search method

    All the previous NAV4 Models and the remaining Models in the NAV5 Range... The Via and GO Range have both the "Quick search" and "Step by Step search" as menu options
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Settings --> System --> Choose a search mode
    Option... (1).... Quick Search (Default)
    Option... (2)... Step by Step
