Issue with UK postcodes

We're getting an unexpected query failure when searching for UK postcode "G20 0SP", but other UK postcodes do appear to work.  Could you investigate why your API is failing to resolve this location?  It's our HQ postcode so we tend to use it a lot for demos, which are now falling over.

Thanks for letting us know.
Thanks for letting us know. This has been added to a list of missing UK postal codes recently discovered. We hope to have the issue resolved soon.

Thanks for the update, Brian.

Thanks for the update, Brian.  Please note that it used to work fine up to a few weeks ago, so I'm assuming you either had an incomplete update, or data store corruption?

Another missing postcode

Hi, I'm getting a similar issue with "BA21 5EG" - I presume it is a new estate. The Geocoding API returns a location of North Yorkshire (about 300 miles away) - it should be in Yeovil,

Regards,

John

The MapQuest team is working
The MapQuest team is working to address this issue with a new backend geocoder. We hope to have a general release of the new backend 2021Q2.

Update released?

Hi, I have an issue with UK postcodes as well - for example, TN24 8DF. I have posted seperately on this then saw this thread. Has this update been made yet?

Thanks

Chris

The new geocode API backend
The new geocode API backend is being rolled out currently and should be in place for all later this year.
