    Hi

    Welcome to the site
    When is the postcode bug going to be fixed on the Start 62
    Don't hold your breath waiting for a fix
    This is a long-standing problem....
    The Postcode code search bug when using the latest Start 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 of Isolated farms, single building, Office blocks, retail parks, Hospitals, New builds etc....

    If you regularly use Postcodes the latest Start device useless in the UK.... On the earlier NAV3 devices the Menu flow allowed you to bypass the 'Street name' or 'House Number' by just tapping 'Enter'....
    The device would then find the centre of the Postcode area or the correct location for individual Postcoded locations like isolated farms, single building, Office blocks, retail parks, Hospitals etc....

    It's only the latest Start 42/52/62 Range that has this particular Step by Step search engine as the only option... 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
    (1).... Quick Search (Default & Best)
    (2)... Step by Step

    Stay Safe... ATB YFM
