UK Post codes!

Postby hodgetts » Sat Sep 18, 2010 9:33 am

I tried it for a number of postcodes I know are mapped in Waze. Here is the postcode I tried for my work (copy & paste to prove I can follow instructions)

ukpostcode:b775pz

Getting this solved would massively improve Waze.

I would be very happy UK data would include Post code search!

Kind regards

Sorry to dig up an old thread but it seems relevant. I've a case where a post code is giving an incorrect location, it's out by about 2 miles. Is there any way to correct this or do we need to wait for an update from the royal mail PAF to somehow propagate through to Waze?

Search PH2 9FF and you'll end up on the B935 half way between the villages of Bridge of Earn and Forgandenny. The actual location of this new postal code is the small street I created to the south of Bridge of Earn named 'Clachan View, Perth and Kinross' https://www.waze.com/livemap?lon=-3.415 ... 53&zoom=16

Now it's May 2011. No sign to show that waze can support postcode search :oops:

Hi

While having the postcode layer will be great, how regularly will it be updated. There's about 2000 changes a year.

As well I wonder if you would consider changing the client app to also give the result. Especiially if that will happen quicker and be maintained bso google local search already returns a location result for postcodes.

But the client app won't show matches if it gets a good enough result from the street index search. And the random hodge lodge of letters and numbers that is a Uk postcode always matches enough streets. It may be enough so the client app always shows the first google local search result regardless of the waze street index results.

Or so it seems to mr vtespectfilly submitted for your consideration.
