    Hi @gkeevash

    Interestingly the BN2 4QX Postcode is not recognised by any of the TT units I have or on another makers units that I have. Don't know if its because it covers new Halls of Residence as the Post Office whilst recognising it do not have it shown on their Map..

    Same results here, BN2 is found, then it refers to BN24, once adding Q there are no results.

    I removed the phone numbers and email address from your original post.

    I don't find the search function very useful as it either causes problems like this or doesn't even find what you are looking for. I much prefer the more precise method used by the original & superior TomTom Navigator of being able to enter a post code directly then get prompted for the house number or alternatively drill down to an address from city->street->number.
