HiFirst post be kind.


Does the myway sat nav support full UK post codes ?
I'm looking to get a DS4 but this is something I would need.


Thanks

No it doesnt sorry it will take the first 4 digits i think but not the full 6.

I thought i needed that facility but find the address works most of the time if not the os map ref works great, there are web sites that convert a post code to the os map ref that are easy to use but like i say 99 times out of 100 i use the address

I spoke with the local business manager at my local Citroen dealer.

He advised full postcode would be an upgrade available later this year...
Hopefully that will happen !

Upgrade not just to the spec, but retrospectively to existing units??
Tha would be good as the current limitation is so .... well, limiting

Welcome Jeff
I thought the post code thing would be a problem but as Deresim says I don't find it a problem.
Don't let it put you off getting the car!

Patience is a virtue, when you get it let us know if it has postcode entry on the sat nav

I am supposed to be getting my new DStyle + MyWay in April according to the dealer. Hopefully it will already have this update on it.

Chaps,Me thinks wishful thinking.

Emyway has always accepted postcodes - problem is its French ones - 5 numbers. They may accept British ones but only four 4 digits, I believe?


To have a 'fix' that will read UK postcodes, would be a complete rewrite of software, to enable it to recognise 7-8 digit ones, also no UK postcodes are stored in its map system [ not needed] or PIOs so these would need updating also.



Maybe for new vehicles, from scratch, but I suspect not for older ones [I'm on EmyWay6 ]

This is the post from CitroenUK on twitter

@madtomt Hi Tom, Yes the update should include full UK postcodes but your dealer will be able to confirm when they do the update.

Sorry to say but I think Rich is probably right, it might be for new ones but doubt for old models

Once I get a delivery date from my dealership, I will ask them about this new update and see what they say. Will have a good play about with it when it does arrive and let you know how the post codes work. Roll on April!!
