Does your TomTom fail to find Post Codes or addresses?

I travel in North Wales. increasinbgly, when I need to find an address I input the postcode - confirmed correct by my passenger - but GO5200 fails to come up with the location and offers a list of 'possibilities' of where the address might be, but often miles away. Google Maps has no problem. I have latest maps downloaded by wifi. Is this a common problem elsewhere?

    Hi @Roy_NV795

    Can you give an example of a postcode that you are experiencing problems with.

    In the meantime have you got your GO 5200 set to Quick Search in Settings/System/Choose a search mode. If you have not then I would recommend that you change to that option.

    + 1... Quick Search is the best search engine
    Further to Doug's post... On Tomtom devices you DO NOT use a space in the middle when typing the postcode
