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.
I did this same thing and it worked for me EXCEPT the guide for the copy n paste Via the Organiser button didn't work so just did the old right click copy the "zip" file and right click on tomtom folder in the +my computer" menu paste AND wala
Go to tomtom official website (tomtom.com) go to support, select product, and type in "postcode search", click on the question "Full digit postcode not working in the UK or The Netherlands" and there's you answer - download the zip file to your pc and follow instructions. Have just tried it and it works !
Unfortunatly if you have deleted everything and do not have any backup then you will not be able to restore your TomTom to working condition.
If you do manage to copy or obtain SD card with files / maps then you will need the origonal product code and activation numbers in order to activate the maps. TomTom home software might restore some of the files needed but you will still need Maps and activation for the TomTom to work.
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.
Look on the SD card in your PC and see if you can see a folder with the COUNTRY NAME of the map. If there is NO map then it is possible at some time in the past someone ( you maybe ) has done a 'drag and drop' on the SD card and accidently dropped the map into another folder. The other possible fault it that the map has been deleted off the SD card or the map folder / file has become currupted.
I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
