    Newbie: Need help with plotting Canadian locations

    The plots for some of the Canadian addresses tend to be hundreds of miles away from the actual locations. The example below should plot in the Toronto area, but instead is about 305 miles away.

    mapFindResults = GCSMapControl.ActiveMap.FindAddressResults("391 CALEDONIA RD", "YORK", , "ON", "M6E MT8", MapPoint.GeoCountry.geoCountryCanada)

    If I remove the last three characters from the postal code, it plots correctly.

    mapFindResults = GCSMapControl.ActiveMap.FindAddressResults("391 CALEDONIA RD", "YORK", , "ON", "M6E", MapPoint.GeoCountry.geoCountryCanada)

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you

    Hey Mdsawyer

    This is not 102% certain but it has been my experience that the Canadian postal codes are not implmented in MapPoint. For example, return results for an address always has a blank postal code in Canada. I would assume it goes the other way. When geocoding an address a Canadian postal code is ignored. Check out Canadian airport codes same thing. I know this is no help but at least you know you're not alone in facing this challenge.

    Ciao,
