    Question UK Postcode file v850?

    Hi all

    I've just updated my TomTom to UK map 850.2820 following your handy guides. I've also installed the (latest?) 845 post code file. Unfortunately it gives incorrect results when doing route plans. My parents post code comes up as somewhere entirely different

    Does anyone know of a matching v850 post code file anywhere for the UK I can grab?

    Many thanks

    my 845 postcodes work perfectly with the 850 maps, it may be worth downloading the zip file again.

    Thanks guys. My old 2008 post code files get the addresses right so I know something is up with the 845 zip on my setup. I will try the 850 link prunikos has posted.
    Many thanks

    Strangely the new post code file has the same issue.

    You can try this yourself, in the UK try going to post code S42 6LZ using 845/850 post code database it identifes the road as' heathfield road' or something. In actual fact that should be Derby Road which is a huge road and cannot be mistaken.
    Very strange. Looks like I shall have to stock with the old post code database.

    The postcode brings up the marker between Heathfield Close and Derby Road in google maps, just off Derby Road, so the area is probably right...ish.

    Ive found your problem S42, Thats a Sheffield sorting office post code.
    Its typical Northern people not knowing where they are.
    Only joking im originally from Doncaster.
    Just checked on my tomtom, your right but Derby Road is directly below, does S42 6NB contain your parents house number?
