2017 sat nav and postcodes.

Post by grahamkeen1 » Sun Jan 21, 2018 5:35 pm

Hi,
Having just bought a 2017 Passat with built in Sat Nav, I am puzzled about trying to navigate to an address defined by postcode and house number. I am used to working with my Tom-Tom.
As far as I can see, I can define where I want to go to by entering town, street and house number - works fine. However, if I don't have the full address, say just house number, road and postcode, I can't find how to enter it.
I have worked out how to just navigate to a postcode 'area' which is many cases is ok but it doesn't work very well for countryfied areas where one postcode covers a wide area.
Am I missing the obvious or is it just not possible ?
Thanks,
Graham.

you will need to click the street name and then in the bottom left corner of the screen you will see "PCD" or something like that, it will then allow you to put the postcode in....

not wishing to hijack this thread but, have you noticed that the updated maps 12/12/17, take you off a motorway and then put you back on at the next junction...if you are lucky? it doesn't matter if I choose Economical, fast or shortest route it still poo!

hopefully next update will sort.

It is doable because I’m sure I’ve done it, the problem is finding where to enter the postcode, it’s so complicated.

Thanks, but that only takes you to the postcode area, you can't identify a street if the post code covers more than one.
Regards, Graham.

When do postcodes cover more than one Street? As above when you go to enter town click on the bottom to change your postcode.

Never had an issue with it myself
