would anyone know if this unit takes postcode entries ?  can't seem to fathom if it does, sure not as easy as my old tom-tom to program.

It depends on the map disc you're using, earlier ones didn't support it. Then it became first 4 digits only and then the later maps did full postcode searches...

The unit installed in the Galaxy is a rebranded VW MFD1 using mapping info provided by Teleatlas - You need the Blaupunkt DX CD system.

I'm not suggesting you buy from here, but this maybe a good reference link:
