    Hi - can someone advise me how to enter a USA address such as 2522 North 2275 West Clinton into my tomtom - all adresses in New Zealand are like 65 Kings Drive, Wanaka which is easy as you go city , then street, then number

    Those of us who don't live there and encounter these addresses CRINGE when we see these "unusual" Utah addresses. Like you, most of us are accustomed to the "65 Kings Drive" approach to the addressing business. That said, being on a total grid system like that, you can't help but find the place, even without a GPS. Trust me, you don't find them anywhere else.

    To enter one, start as normal:

    Navigate to
    Address
    Street and house number
    Select Utah in the upper right corner
    Select Clinton for the town
    To get there quicker, go to the numerics and hit "2275" (you enter the second set of digits first)
    You'll see two "streets" ... E2275S and N2275W .. you need the latter. Select it.
    Then just enter the address, "2522".
