    Arrow [MapPoint Euro 2004] pb with approximative locations...

    Hello,

    I have been made a program with visual Basic and Mappoint Europe 2004.
    When an adress is well found by mappoint I don't have any pb, the pushpin is well placed.
    when mappoint doesn't know a street adress, I'm having a new search, with only postalcode and city, but the pushpin isn't well placed

    for example:


    The Pushpin isn't on Verfeil and it arrives with other cases...

    Do you have an idea or a solution to put the pushpin exactly where it's needed ?
    Is that possible to get exact coordantes of a city in order to put my pushpin in the right place ?

    Thanks for your help !

    Hi,

    Set Altitude to 1 before finding the Location and placing the pushpin. It will be placed in the center of the point of the postal code.

    Hi,

    You are right, I did the test myself. I was pretty sure it should plot in the center, but probably the test I ever did was very late in the eve
