I see that the AA website states that their system supports full postcodes. Can anyone recognise the software that they are using?

It's a new piece of software. I have been in contact with them for the past couple of weeks and guess what ? We'll be getting a review copy soon! Wink

Unique to AA Navigator: Full 'street-level' postcodes. Drive straight to 'XY12 3AB'
Full GB mapping from Navteq, includes M6 Toll Road

well this could be an interesting review :-)

it will be interesting as to who has developed it, things like the blue screen for motorway and green for the a roads.

its a bit pricey for standalone software/hardware though.

the pricing to me looks about right cosidering tomtom and co pilot were over 120 for soft ware only when released

Well if the AA can do full post codes (assuming it works) I don't see why the other major players can't offer the same.

If it is simply money then OK Centrica is big, but isn't Brunswick big too albeit in the US?
