After a huge problem trying to down load the new Western Europe maps, I now find that I have no postcodes. I have tried to download the postcodes from Tom Tom home but I still just get a 3 digit search which as a commercial driver is useless to me. I bought the download from TomTom, my system had full postcode search prior to the down load. Has anyone any idea what the cause and solution is please?
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.

So it never work even on a different unit so the problem there can be with the SD card the data inside it might be corrupted, how about if y9ou check the content of that SD card to make sure data are still there...
First BACKUP your SD card. Go here and download latest version of TomTom HOME >> For the PC or for the MAC , You can download tomtom HOME here >
I would recommend you only do a map upgrade if you definatly need to as looking at other posts on this forum lots of people have problems after trying to update maps. Updating maps is NOT FREE , you have to pay for updates and after downloading updates you need to reactivate the map with your product code . Only do an update after backing up your existing maps other sie you might have trouble reverting back if the download goes wrong.
Go support on official TomTom site. Entery your product then search tech support for 'postcode search'. One of the FAQ returned is exactly your problem (full postcode search in UK or Netherlands). Download file and follow instructions. Et voila!
If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.
1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore
TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.
