    Hi
    @rickardo
    On the screen where you enter your city/postcode
    Screen top right is a Flag Icon... Tap the Flag Icon (Should be the UK Union Flag)
    Type Un or as much of the countries name ie... United Kingdom to put the UK map Icon at the top of the list
    Tap the UK Flag Icon
    Now you can enter your UK Address
    The UK map will now be the default Map

    If you plan a trip to another Country you will have to change the Map as above to suit
    Don't forget to switch back to the UK Map on your return
