Just updated to TTN5 and am not impressed with the Postcode search! Have I missed something out?
I installed the postcode file from CD1 and last night I needed to navigate to an address that is in the middle of nowhere, but has a postcode. UKPostcode would have found it and I could have added it as a favourite or navigated directly, the new TTN5 only uses the first three digits of the postcode and then I had to guess the street name closest to the location (1.5 miles away).....am I doing something wrong?

Also the POI warning system is not as effective as GPS Assist, because it doesn't allow two warnings, but this can be got used to over time.

The issue with not being able to get back to the today screen is also silly, but can be overcome with the hardware buttons.

I also miss the speed display under the distance marker on the navigator screen. The new placement makes it quite small and mixed in with the other information.

Apart from these few initial niggles, it seems pretty good

The install fails to create an empty folder on the SD card - just do it yourself - it is called "tomtom". Also, you need to search using the postcode option on the second page - not the address option on the first.

There have been plenty of other discussions of postcodes here that explain things in more detail.

Julian

Thanks for the advice. True to form, just as I posted my request for info, I then saw the other posting. I have followed your instructions and voila! it now works perfectly...

Thank you to all those that submitted answers to the question.
