GPSMAP 62 search function

I have recently bought a gpsmap 62s and I have installed OSM maps on it from talky toaster. When I try to search for an address the garmin first asks for state or province but recognises nothing I put in so I can't go further. I realise some maps don't allow searching on postcodes but I can't get that far. Has anyone experienced this and overcome it?

    OSM maps compiled with mkgmap can include address search, but with standard compilation this feature is active only for routable maps. Which map have you downloaded?

    I've downloaded the UK map that is an alternative to the Ordnance Survey 1:50k one. It's routable but I can't say exactly which because my computer is being repaired! However, even if I disable the map so that the base map is being used I still get tje same response when trying to enter state or province. I need to change the parameters even when I have entered only one letter!
