    Wrong home address in Google Maps


    I have set my home address in Google maps but Google insists on changing St to Saint which is not a problem, but it also changes the postcode to what it was 3 or 4 years ago. Our address was altered changing "Somewhere" to "Somewhere Place" and we were issued with a new postcode. I suspect this is a Google database issue. It took a few months before various databases caught up with our new postcode. In which case, I can't do anything about this!
