You can't on the icn 650. There was mention of a database of postcodes that could be loaded but the feeling I got was that they are essentially thousands of POIs and not very practical to use.

It appears from what I have read that Navman are not updating any software for this device which seems very poor service considering some people will have paid around 800 only a couple of years ago for a piece of 'obsolete' kit. I imageine there will be large group of very unhappy navman users.

Sorry for the double post!
Yes, I'm afraid that there isn't 7 digit postcode search only 5. I have the Sony NVXP1 which is the same as the Navman icn650 but I have not found this a major problem as it is still possible to find the address - it just takes a bit longer. Also, I often do not have the postcode anyway so need to enter via town/streetname/house no. anyway.

Me included. I've spoken to Navman about this. They told me there will me no more map updates either.
So I've dumped it after only 18months and gone to TomTom.
I know people moan about TT's support but Navman's was far worse.
