Just updated the medianav system on my new Captur. As well as the free 2013 Q2 map update, I downloaded the full postcode search update for £4.45!! I had expected to pay £56. Pleasantly surprised to say the least. Installed it in the car and it works.

The download and installation process is just the same as the map upgrade.

Hi there
Im due to pick up my captur the first week of april ( no confirmed day yet), very excited!

Where did you go to get the full postcode search update for that price so that I can get that sorted pretty much the day I pick up the car

many thanks

On it, done it, works fine. £4.45 instead of the map update at £57that includes it. I think somebody some where has had a flea in their ear over this.If they hadmade this upgrade available from the start it would have saved a lot of upset andarguementamidst this group of Renault owners. Many thanks to 19max10 for bringing it to our attention.
Nice one, made my day, well chuffed.

Brilliant Max. I've had a few issues finding certain locations that don't have street numbers etc and have been using my removable TomTom where necessary or driving round in circles
I thought the £57 I saw on the forums was a bit steep but under a fiver works for me

Just downloaded the postcode update. Then entered a FULL postcode for a destination I am visiting next week. Found it no problem. So one of the biggest gripes on Medianav solved for under a fiver! Yet again the Captur Owners Forum proves invaluable. And many thanks to Max for sharing the information.

Well I followed all the steps parrot fashion and all went well, right up to the last bit of plugging it in to perform the update. However, when I plug it back into the car it doesn't seem to update the full postcode functionality? Do I need to force it to update from the stick somehow? Cheers

Once you have paid for the update, it has downloaded and your tool box is saying your device is up to date. Take out your USB stick from your PC/laptop. Start your Captur system and plug in you USB stick, if all has downloaded properly it should update your sytem. I promise you that is all I personally did. Yours is the first fault I have heard of. Good luck.

If you are still having trouble with the update.
reformat the memory stick using your computer.
Then take the memstick to the car.
Use the update facility to load the current update details onto the memory stick.
Then take the memory stick to the computer.
Use the toolbox to interrogate the memstick. If you have the current version details on the memstick your toolbox will tell you.
Please note, the full postcode service is NOT an update, it is a new facility, just like the situation if you were buying a map of Australia, for instance. So you will have to select and purchase the full postcode option. Once purchased, it will be downloaded to the memstick. You then take that to the car for upload to the medianav system.

Of course your quite correct Crossbow. The full psotcode recog is an enhancment and not an update, it is actually under "software feature". I bought it as such and used the wrong grammar to try to describe what I was doing. I had already done the latest free map update and did the Post code recog seperately as soon as I had realised it was available..

Thewhiteball,
lets hope things are sorted now. I didn't have a problem doing mine, so was only guessing where a problem might be.
Great, these on-board computers (NOT).

Thanks for the help. It is really weird as I can search & find on the Media Nav in the car, that the Full postcode add on is on my system ie it has downloaded it, but when I create a route it doesn't do the full digit postcode - no doubt I am doing something wrong.
