Just download that file then extract the files ,plug in your tomtom to your pc, open up the tomtom device in my computer(XP) or computer(Vista/Windows 7) and copy the extracted files into the zip folder, then unplug the device and you will be able to enter full postcodes
it has lost the post code file, restore your tomtom from your back up if you have one, if not you will have to call tomtom cus serv and they will guide you through over the phone on how to reinstall the post code file, i had same prob
Unfortunately a street number is now required after initial 3 post code digits- a huge and dissappointing step back from the older tom tom option of finding the destination based solely on the full postcode-not all destinations have a street number or the number may not be known (stupid Tom Tom designers).
The only solution I know of is to make up a number (Not always practical if destination is office block for example) or use the point on map option (not as acurate) or the latitude/longitude option which is only really usefull for rural destinations in the middle of no where. Tom Tom really need to produce a fix for this major oversight in the form of a software update.
go to tomtom website ----> support ---->select
product, in the search box type in "full postcode", click on the 1. "Full digit postcode search not working in UK or The Netherlands" then follow instructions.
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.
Download the file below and save it to your computer.
wezipcodes715.zip (10.5 MB)
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.
Connect your TomTom device to your computer.
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.
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.
- Navigate to - Address - Street and house number - In the "City" space at the top, type the postcode. (tap 123 button bottom left of keyboard to get the number pad) - You will see a list beneath of the countries that use the postcode. - Tap the country you want. - You then see a list of streets in that postcode area. - Tap the street name (or start typing it in) - Type in the house number.
