The Navman software never ceases to amaze me Smile I had to go to Weybridge in Surrey to a hotel, all I had was the hotel name Oatlands Park Weybridge Surrey. (Print companies are like that they never take enough information)

So put in Weybridge using Town/City finds it OK, try using address, put in town weybridge doesn't find it. Sad

When I got home I did a search for the hotel and found the full address

Oatlands Park Hotel
Oatlands Drive
Weybridge
Surrey
KT13 9HB

By using the postcode it comes up as Oatlands Drive ELMBRIDGE or Oatlands Drive Staines Elmbridge.

Elmbridge? could this be a simple typo into the database Question

Unfortunately it is a trait of the database lookup facility as provided by TeleAtlas. Elmbridge is the Borough Council for Weybridge. Incidentally, the hotel in question is listed under Walton-on-Thames in SmartSTPro V2. You could use this link to report your findings directly to TeleAtlas.[/quote]
