With the MkIV, here in the U.S. we didn't have search by postcode (zip code) until the Navteq 2006.2 disk was released. This seems to work with both V26 and V27.

Sorry I can't help with a MkIII or a European nav disk answer, but :xoutpost:

When you enter the City search you can now enter a 5 digit postal code in lieu of the city name.

yes, going from a MkIII to a MkIV is a simple plug-n-play swap of the nav drive.
