    do you have 10.85 maps?
    then report in mapshare https://www.tomtom.com/mapshare/tools/

    HI there :)

    I would love to report this issue for you, kindly provide a screenshot of the business website on google maps or other source and provide coordinates, plus the name of Business please :)

    Thank you :)

    Just out of curiosity, I looked up SK15 1QL on both my TomTom & GoogleMaps, I also looked it up on Royal Mail PostCode Checker!

    The following Screenshot is from Googlemaps:-

    PostCode Checker lists numerous Properties in "Whitelands Industrial Estate, Clarence Street, Stalybridge" which, as the Address implies, is located on Clarence Street (with its entrance roughly alongside "Heart for Art Tattoo") - this includes Properties such as "Fitch Fuels" & "Oily Bikers LTD"!

    As far as I can tell, ONLY those properties within the Whitelands Industrial Estate have this Post Code.

    However, my TomTom GO5100 (with the latest Maps) shows SK15 1QL as being further south, on Clarence St, roughly where my Image shows for "Media Hire Furniture" (which is actually SK15 1QF)!

    Although TomTom's Online "Route Planner" shows it much further North!

    Hence, I would agree that TomTom needs a bit of updating!
