Postcode input missing

As stupid as this sounds when i click Navigation > Destination input - i can enter anything (country, county street) except from a postcode? Spoke to my dealer who asked me to book the car in to see the postcode cant be entered?

Ive not used this method to enter a postcode in the past but i normally log onto BMW's site and send postcodes via MyInfo but this morning i had to enter it into the system myself and couldnt find this option?

Am i doing something wrong or has something gone wrong here?

You enter the postode in the first box, is that city? not sure? Just start typing and it knows you are putting a postcode in as you progress. But it only take 5 digits so you still need at least street name and maybe area thus its pretty useless.

Also you can send full exact addresses/details/messages from google maps, much better than BMW site, no log on or anything, just find you location then send/car/bmw/userid

Yeah, it's a bit rubbish that you can't put the whole post code in, but the google maps thing is a work of genious!
