    Just found this site and found it brilliant and easy to use.

    Much more accurate than postcode for programming a SatNav. Especially if your satnav is a few years old like mine :Smile:

    Apologies if it has been around for ages :Doh:

    Both these sites are powered by Google, you can do exactly the same on any Google map.

    Right click on the Google map place, click on 'what's here' and the co ordinates are shown in the map address bar ..

    That TYRE program looks really useful. The only problem is I have a Garmin and don't want to change to a TomTom as it has taken me a year to learn the basics on the Garmin. Does anyone know of a similar program compatible with Henrietta the Navigator (our Garmin)?

    Cheers,

    Mike
