  • Poor Postcode search and newer better maps

    sorry for the multitude of questions

    as posted elseware my MS 4150 RS appears to be alive again but the postcode search is very limited
    if i am correct this is down to the maps, in my case navteq supercode 2009/2010
    is there a better/newer map?

    thanks

    I think you do not understand the technique behind the postcode search on C-IQ or now Supercode equipment
    From the navigation interface you can only enter numbers to select a postal code. However, The Netherlands and UK also use letters in their postal codes hence another method has been developed

    On the CD Benelux you will find a postal code search for Holland where you can enter any combination of 4 numbers and 2 letters
    On the CD UK & Ireland you will find the same search facility for UK Postal codes using the 6 digit combination

    Finally you will find both search engines on the Major Roads CD

    Apart from the search engine you can enter the numbers of the Dutch postcodes in the destination screen where it says City/Zip

      thanks Gazo but i am having difficulty understanding
      can you please explain what the 'Major Roads CD' is?
      do i have to get this separately and if so what number download is it?
      i can enter postcodes in the destination screen but it seems they are limited in what is stored on the UK CD
      thanks

        Since you seem to be British I would have thought you would understand what a "Major Road" is
        Major Roads is the CD that you need to plan and calculate cross border trips
        It contains all the European Major Roads and Highways including most cities or at least their centres
        You can visit the Navteq or TeleAtlas sites to find out more about the collection of cd's

        The 2009/2010 set containes 10 cd's. One of which is the MRE, Major Roads of Europe

        If you have this CD or the UK cd in your navi, you can enter the travel information section and select UK Postalcode Finder
        You can there select any UK postal code and select this as your destination

            The UK CD is for UK only
            Everything stops at the sea side!


            In the Destination Menu you can scroll down

            In the Travel info menu you are given 3 choices:
            • C-IQ Speedcamera's
            • Navteq POI
            • UK Postalcode finder
            See page 45 of your Owner's Manual under Travel Info

              thanks Gazo that works
              strangely i can enter postcodes directly in the destination menu but it gives limited access
              will a software upgrade improve anything or is it a case of if it aint broken......

              ps, can you get the speedcameras to work?

              thanks very much for your help
