Garmin Montana 650T question

Hello, I purchased one of these today based on influence from some users on here and their experience with the unit. I won't recieve it for another couple of days but I am curious to get a definitive answer to a question that bothers me. I spoke with three different shops over the phone regarding Montana, two told me that I could input UK postal codes and it will recognise them and take me too location. The Third shop said that you cannot use postal codes with this unit, you must put in full address. As it has a road package I assume it could do codes!!!
Anyone here got experience with this unit and confirm this for me please?
Regards
Sean

You'll get more eyes on your question if you move this to the HUGE Montana thread in 'Layin' down tracks'

Now, to your question...

Unless you have purchased and installed Garmin City Navigator UK (CNEU) on the Montana 650t, you do not have the ability to search Addresses OR Postal Code's. I haven't had my Montana for a couple of software updates so I can't confirm the LACK of EU Postal Code Search. Wasn't there when I had mine and I had CNEU maps.
