    I agree postcodes are postcodes etc but around here they refer to a street, not a big area. My street is a different postcode to the next street over and were only a hundred yards away.
    I’ve installed Navmii on my phone now and that works correctly. Just wondering what’s gone wrong with Google maps for me.

    I’m just using the postcode, its easier for work than typing in full address, if I type in full address its fine. This is in an urban setting not rural. Its not the end of the world, I just use it now and then for work, and yesterday got me lost for 20 minutes.
    It never used to be like it, its as if something has changed.
    Anything else worth using…[Read more]

    I’d end up in Area 54 using it now.
    Not giving me the centre of postcode, no.
    It tried to send me to some random point in a field yesterday. And using my parents postcode as an example, it drops the marker on a footpath a couple of streets away.

    Morning
    Whenever I search for something on Google Maps, it drops the red marker about half mile out.
    And then navigates me to the red marker not the street I’m looking for.
    It does this on my phone and laptop, also on wifes phone.
    Any ideas?
