Hi everyone

jut about to pop down to HALFORDS to buy either the TomTom 730 T or TomTom 740 GO LIVE

can you tell me if the following streets are on any of these units?

im looking for CAPUCHIN COURT in CHERRY HINTON which is in CAMBRIDGE in ENGLAND

on my old tomtom 520 unit it cannot find this address, but my other Garmin unit can

also, can tomtom find RUSHBROOKE MANOR in COBH which is in CORK in SOUTHERN IRELAND and also BUTLER CLOSE in HORSPATH, postcode is OX33 1PJ, for some reason it says there are only 4 house numbers, but their are infact 8, has tomtom solved this problem yet?

if the tomtom range can find the 3 addresses, i will be purchasing it today, i use these addresses all the time


many thanks

Just done a quick search before going to work.

The address in Horspath came up straight away. Did that because it was easy with the Post code.
Using a TT720 by the way with v8 maps and lates post codes obtained from this site

Rushbrooke Manor is a little troublesome to say the least.

Do you have a postcode for that address? This might be a way around it.

Rushbrooke Manor isn't showing as a road name, but Rushbrooke Park is - although Google is showing that 76 Rushbrooke Manor is for sale.

Rushbrooke Manor appears to be off Rushbrooke Park, see the map here.

However, when you zoom in, the road at that point is shown as Rushbrooke Park.

Change the country from UK to Ireland

Enter city as An Cobh

Enter road as Rushbrooke Park

I simply entered house number as 3 and my 720 plans a route to the road shown in the map with the house for sale.

Hopefully, this helps - but I've had problems navigating to other Irish addresses.

Butler Close in Horspath still only seems to recognise houses between numbers 1 & 4. However, the road where my brother lives plays this same trick and I wouldn't say it was a problem but more a slight irritation.

Capuchin Court in Cherry Hinton does not appear

CB1 9GP will find it, although it is marked as unnamed on the 815 map.

As you frequently visit those addresses, first time you go you could set them as favourites or pois.

Ireland doesn't use postcodes, so there won't be one for this address.

True, I was confusing myself because Dublin is split up into areas like Dublin 1, Dublin 4 etc

Didn't we all spend time doing the RUSHBROOKE MANOR one on Monday? Confused
