Viewing contacts on map
I have all my PC contacts from Outlook on my Blackberry 9300 and using When selecting a contact and "View Home On Map" most are fine. One I can't fathom is for an address in my home town in England. It has a postcode starting BA, but the choices it gives me are for the correct street name but for a town 12 miles away with the postcode starting BS. I could understand if it was unable to find anything, but this is odd. I have checked several times to make sure it is entered correctly and the same thing happens using BB Maps and Google Maps.
When trying "Map It" from within Outlook on my PC it works fine on the default Bing map.
I would be grateful for any ideas.

Perhaps try deleting the contact from your BlackBerry and re-entering it, paying strict attention to the formatting in each field. Especially the region/area code.

Re: Viewing contacts on map
Tried deleting from Blackberry contacts then re-entering. Also deleting on Blackberry and re-syncing from Outlook. It made no difference in either case. I never enter the Country/Region unless it is outside Britain.
Just tried a few others and some with no countries work fine, but one with a local post code came up on google maps as an address in ME, USA. That one shows the correct address and post code without State/Province or Country/Region
Again it shows correctly on Bing from within Outlook. Seems very inconsistent. I wonder if it is a problem with the latest OS 6 that I am using as I don't recall having this before.

Rambo, I owe you an apology. If I had scrolled down further I would have seen "Show on google maps" What I was looking at was "View home on map" which was the problem. Show on google maps works fine. Sorry to have bothered you.
