    Nope. OSM maps don't do postcode searching that I'm aware of

    oh that explains it then. What benefits do they offer over basemaps then? ie was it worth the effort?

    Basemaps on anything but the 1000 are a joke but if you plan your route then they're fine.

    I have the latest official Garmin map on mine and it's sublime. No OSM map (for NI at least) comes close to it in functionality.

    Go and find Scarletfire on the web. It's idiot proof. I did it and I screw anything IT

  • As previously stated OSM does not support postcode search. Not that in many years of using gps units have I ever wanted or needed to do one.
