Sat nv address approx ONE mile away

  Dirty Dick 01 Oct 09

Recently I had to call an ambulance for my wife. I went to meet it, and had to flag it down, the crew said they were going off their Sat Nav and it was showing my address approx ONE MILE away.

Also I have a have a Garmin Nuvi 350, and have recently updated it, but when I put in my address, it shows it in the same place as th ambulance crew.

Is there anything I can do to rectify this problem?

How did you enter your address? Just Postcode?

Tried both Poscode AND full address.

Post codes in rural areas can be inaccurate.
