Dear all

I have loaded in the posisoft postcode data into the Great Britain folder on my Palm T3/TOMTOM as per the instructions. It is working but is very slow taking about 20 secs to access the postcode data. Any ideas what is causing everything to run slow?
help appreciated

I'm pretty sure that if you enable all the postcode POI's then your system will slow down considerably. In Tom Tom, I only enable the relevant postcode POI when I want to navigate to a particular address, and then uncheck it again when I have found the address (which I then either navigate to or save as favourite).

Whereas the excellent PocketGPS safety camera ov2 files seem to have no effect on performance, the postcodes definately slow things down ?

The forthcoming TomTom Navigator 5 upgrade (if you check the compatibility list, it includes various Palms as well as Pocket PCs) contains full postcodes for the UK. I suspect you'll probably need the new maps and not just the software upgrade for postcode support, but details on that point as well as upgrade pricing and availability are not yet available.

TomTom Navigator 5 was announced at CeBIT this morning.
