Hi dwsdeccs

The problem with the Carminat sat nav in the Trafic is that there is no postcode input, so unless you enter the correct town first, ie. the one that the sat nav software has for the location you are looking for, it will only list streets in that area. I get this all the time on my 57 plate Trafic around Staffordshire - a customer may give me their address as Ash Close, Newcastle under Lyme, but the sat nav has no Ash Close listed for the town, but if I put the town as Stoke on Trent then it normally lists a number of Ash Close choices and you can click on the one you want. Try the nearest town next time you try looking for Margate Road.

I have looked for ages for better software to give me postcode input and have had no sucess, let me know if you find any please. Regards Adrian

that is correct with no postcode input you need to make sure you enter the correct town/city. the problem can be annoying in large towns and cities. For instance in Liverpool you cant simply type in liverpool you have to type in the area of the city. ie Bootle, Toxteth etc
