Default New peugeot 308SW owner, a couple of questions.

Hi there, I've recently purchased a 308 SW (early 2013). It came with full sevice history but somewhere along the line the original handbook was lost. I've now downloaded one in PDF format and am working my way through it.
I've connected my phone through Bluetooth with surprising ease and have the radio playing my mp3 devices .
The satnav is OK but doesn't seem to be able to accept postcodes, is that normal?
The only disappointment I have is that the handbook shows the setup for cruise control and speed limiting but my car does not have the required control lever on the left of the steering column, can I assume that these were not fitted to all of these models?
I'll be grateful for any replies. Mel.

Have you tried entering the postcode(s) in the "City" portion of the address ?

Thank you, I'll try that tomorrow, I did try to put it in the street portion but the predictive text setup made it impossible to put the letters in the right order for a postcode, so I gave up trying.

If your car does not have the cruise control switch then your car is not fitted with cruise control.
However it should be easy to retro fit cruise control.
The procedure has been documented many times on this forum. Just enter "Retro Fit Cruise Control" in the search box.

Thank you, I can live without it but I will do some research now that I know.

Today I tried putting the postcode into the 'city' part of the address and found that it accepts only the first part of the code then selects the town / area but doesn't seem interested in being any more specific than that.

I have the same problem with the MYWAY Sat Nav system fitted in my 2012 Citroen DS3.
I think it is just a glitch in the system.
Not sure if anything can be done about it.

What map update level do you have installed in the car?
Early models such as yours didn't accept postcodes, it was added in an update to one of the later maps if I remember correctly.

I am in the process of updating mine at the moment but am experiencing a few problems. I ordered a 2019 map update from eBay and it arrived last week. However, when I put the card in it said "Navigation Not Currently Available. Insert Navigation Medium".
I contacted the seller and he emailed me a software update (R50B R50.03) which I installed.
However, the map set he had sent me still would not work. He is sending me a new SD card this week.

So I do not know if the software update has corrected the postcode problem.
I will update you when the SD card arrives.

Sorry if I appear to be hijacking this thread but I think this information may be helpful to you.

No apology needed, this is exactly what forums are about, I'll be pleased to hear more, thank you.
