    Hi @steve24711

    That Postcode (M6 4DA) is not recognised by the Postcode searches including the Post Offices.

    It would seem that M6 postcodes start with M6 5AA. Apparently there are no M6 4?? postcodes or for that matter M6 1??, M6 2?? or M6 3??

    That's funny because there are hundreds of houses and business in that area of Manchester

    Hi Steve,

    It seems Google Maps can't find it either, does your city have a GIS or a mapping website that you can use to find addresses?

    You could send that to the tom-tom map share as "other" report or address and link the website.


    Did find this, couldn't find your address either. Hmm, not sure what is wrong. Best to check with your city.
