Tomtom troubleshooter


Search tomtom website and download the latest postcode file (it ends .zip) and using windows copy this file to your device and it should work using post codes again. Ensure the file retains the .zip extension as it is not a zip file as one would know a zip file in normal computing to be a compressed file but .zip for the american name for a postcode being a zip code. I cannot remember if this file is copied to the main part of the tomtom or the map so try main part first.

My mio navman 448 will only accept the first 4 digits of a postcode before it says no matching postcode. Any advice to rectify the problem would be much apprecited!


Hi,
Where did you buy it and what addresses are you looking for? UK addresses? If you bought your device outside UK but you are looking for a UK address you will only get partial postcode search (5 digits). give Mio a call (0871 277 0139), they should be able to help you with this

I am STILL trying to download the latest Wester Europe Maps to my Go 700. But I have found this answer to your question. Any tips on how I down load the v7.20 to my TomTom? good luck.

When navigating to a location in the UK or The Netherlands you should be able to enter full digit postcodes.
If you are only able to enter 4 digits, follow the instructions below.

  1. Download the file below and save it to your computer.

    downloadbutton.gif wezipcodes715.zip (10.5 MB)

  2. Extract the contents of the downloaded file to your desktop (on PC right-click the downloaded file and select Extract to).

    You will now have a folder called 'zip' on your desktop.

  3. Connect your TomTom device to your computer.

  4. If you are using a PC click Start > My Computer and double-click the icon for your TomTom device.

    If you are using a Mac click the icon for your TomTom device on your desktop.

  5. Copy the complete 'zip' folder to your TomTom device.

    Note: The 'zip' folder should be copied to the 'root' of your TomTom device. This means not inside one of the folders.
