Now please download the appropriate postcode file and save it to your computer without changing the file's name.
 
http://www.tomtom.com/updates/zipcodes/zip.zip
 
 
Now, please open that file using i.e. WinRAR.
 

 
 
After having done that please extract the file to a folder called zip (all letters lower case).
 

 

 
 
Having extracted the file please copy that folder called zip and containing the postcode files to the root folder of your device.
 

 

 

 
 
Now that the files are on your device please open TT Home and disconnect your device safely from the computer using the blue button in the bottom right corner of TT Home. After having disconnected safely you'll be able to use the full postcode search on your device.
 
 
 
Regards
Lars.
