You don't need to put a space in the postcode on a Tom Tom. Just type it all in one line.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu

Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.

Tom tom 710

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 (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.

OK. This is how to do it.

- 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.
