In UK, the database to convert a postcode to the latitude and longitude degrees is not free. It is owned by the Post Office, who sells it to companies for various products. This may be the reason why so many GPS systems do not support a postcode search. It always takes me a long time to figure out the latitude and longitude degrees of a destination where I wish to go. Then, I found this website providing the conversion service and I also learnt from some File Exchange submissions on how to program MATLAB to get information from a webpage. This comes to the small tool. Wish some of you find it usefull.
