Hello,

My Tom Tom ( GO Premium X) is not very accurate when i only enter post code. For example I recently travelled to TN24 0SD. When i input this it just took me to a random road in that area... If i put the same post code in google maps - it gives me Kimberly way. Do i need to get the full address from google maps and use them in my Tom Tom - else it seems to take me to the general area but never the exact location.

Thank you

    Hi
    @rambolz
    Welcome to the site....
    Are you using the Quick Search or the Step by step search option....
    I always use the superior Quick Search....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> System --> Choose a search mode... Select the far superior 'Quick search' option....

    The Post Office Postcode finder state that all the units on this trading estate have the same post code....
    TN240SD.... Search using my GO Premium. OK...

    GO Premium search using "Designer outlet Ashford"
    Offers a location near as dammit the same as Google Maps....
