Angry NAV annoyance when entering destination address

Am I the only one who gets p'd off with this annoying auto-predict/fill feature? Perhaps it's not behaving the same with US addresses (and zip codes).

When I'm looking up an address, I enter the street name, then when entering the first 3 digits of the postal code, it automatically pops up with possible city/neighborhoods using these 3 first digits. When I have no clue where I'm going, I'm stuck selecting one of the choices provided by the system, but if often leads to "the address does not exist", and have to start over and over. Why can't I just enter the friggin' FULL postal code without having to rely on a potential city/town match...?

I tried switching the postal code field to city name, and system is really slow to respond when spelling cities, as it's trying to fetch the next "possible" letter available for that address... Since the keyboard is so slow, I start typing away, and suddenly, system pops up with possible city names, however that occurs exactly when my fingers are still typing the next letter, but the system interprets my typing as choosing the first city from the list... and again, wrong city, and I have to start over.

The IVT team once replied back in a PM that was a standard feature and there was no work around for this annoyance.

Now, I'm wondering - anyone else experienced this? Any tips, advice... work arounds?!

I miss my $200 Garmin!!!
