CodeSearch

CodeSearch can be used to extract sets of TomTom Navigator POI data from a large database of UK Postcodes created by George Spanellis and published on the Pocket GPS web site. These large files, which map UK Postcodes to co-ordinates, can be transferred to a PocketPC and used directly with TomTom Navigator, but searching for a particular postcode can take a long time. CodeSearch lets you extract and annotate points corresponding to selected postcodes and write them to a new, and much smaller, overlay that can be used for navigation when transferred to a PocketPC.

1/3/2005 For copyright reasons the Postcode files have been removed from the PocketGPS website. The sample file that is in the CodeSearch Zip file is incomplete, but is retained as an example of the required data.

The program uses a spreadsheet style grid for data entry. Enter the required subset of postcodes in column 1 of the grid. If a match exists in the postcode database, then the corresponding co-ordinates will show in columns 3 and 4 (when you move to another cell of the grid). The entry can be annotated by entering text in column 2.
