    Already tried that. You can type in postcodes as long as you like. But it only acts on the main part (up to where the space would go.)
    (PDA version.)

    EDIT> Got it working by installing map to SD card rather than through Activesync.

    Now I just need to get rid of the "Cannot execute \Windows\ttgpseng.exe" notification error each time I power on, LOL.

I hope not, I'm sure I read they were included.)

    But postcode searching is definitely not 7 character by default, at least not in London. How do you enable it?

    I have upgraded from 3 to 5 also.

    Besides the odd bug as most people seem so be aware, it's great. The main things I like are the built-in postcode search and the fact that road names are displayed on the map as you're driving. This helps when you're trying to find a road in an unusual area

    Also yeah as long as you hide POIs, the map scrolls beautifully smooth. It was annoying with TT3 if you were negotiating a roundabout it'd be all jerky and jumping around the place, lol. With TT5 it just smoothly circles it and back up the road you're taking.

    It's also a rather accurate speedometer. In my car, 65MPH on the speedo = 60 true MPH

    It's also like that in my car. When my speedo says 70mph I'm actually going about 63mph according to TT5.

    Dunno which to believe!

    Well speedos are usually off so I'd be inclined to believe TomTom. It'll be more accurate on a motorway because you're giving it ( and the satellites) longer to average out the speed

    There is a bug in the TT5 installation.

    To enable full 7 digit postcodes searches check out the the link to another forum below.

    I think the problem occurs if you don't remove TT3 before installing TT5. It is an old (now deleted) TT3-file that is creating the problem.

    There is a link to ttgpseng.exe in "Notification Queue" and Registry.
    I used Pocket Mechanic http://www.pocketgear.com/software_d...ssociateid=373 to delete the link in "Notification Queue" and Clean up my Registry, and I got rid of the error.

    Happy TT5'ing ! :-)

    Cheers, tif, will give that a go.
    I got 30% off Pocket Mechanic using code pg5679432 found here.
    I'm so cheap!
    EDIT> It worked! Also deleted 342 duplicate entries in the notification queue, LOL! And it shows lots of stuff in the registry that needs deleteing, but I'll be a bit more careful about that though.
    Thanks again.

    Why do spammers keep resurrecting old threads that I started?

    I'm getting a bit paranoid now :-S
