The issue is that with V27 and above, in the split screen RH pane, you do NOT get your location if you are in a suburb or village. All you get is the NEAREST large town (presumably based on postcode)

That is the issue with V27+ but of course anyone who travels the motorways/freeways between major cities won't see the problem - its only if you goo off onto the minor roads through small villages - something that you have to do a lot in the UK. Therefore if you break down/have a prang, its no good the nav telling you that your location is Main Streen, Bigtown when in fact you are in Main Street, Tinyville (which is a village that just happens to be closeish to Bigtown)
Navteq (Licenced by BMW) have cocked up in a BIG way. You can enter a Postcode but the computer will only allow the first 5 digits. I'ts not very helpful is it?! I can't even find my own house....... I would suggest that you complain to BMW UK - but you won't get very far as their switchboard is staffed by young ladies who have not the faintest clue about cars - & neither have their supervisors . I have personally given up with BMW as their customer service is CRAP!
