Not that their own user forum has bothered to make an announcement....bloody typical!

...so expect the official release of the latest v990 maps next week!

Have you loaded them?

Can you try CF10 4GA to see if it locates Teigr Way and not Adam Street please? The most recent postcode files are back to v960, which is a downgrade from v955!

It just shows CF10 4GA as Adam Street & CF10 4HB (next code shown) as Atlanric Wharf

Weird but check it out here too http://www.royalmail.com/find-a-postcode

Yes, at least Royal Mail know where it is. If you download TT's postcode v955, it will show the correct location, but none since then. I have been onto TomTom about it and they say I should submit a map correction on the mapshare page - ridiculous! I even told them where to get v955 and try it for themselves and they'll look into it (and let me know - if I hold my breath long enough!).

The problem is, my not updated v955 built in TT R-Link shows different results from the two "updated" GO models (v985) I have for many postcodes. I know this one is correct on the v955 map built in and wrong on the others. Plus, I know where I'm going when I go to BBC in Cardiff. But what about when I do a postcode in Nether Hopping and they show different roads? As a professional delivery man, I need to get to the right road/street.

FIIK how to get round it unless Garmin can do better (and they certainly couldn't do any worse than TT have been doing over the last few years, that's for sure!)

Actually spot on - that's the Welsh version of the name (which is used in Google maps).
