If I get the chance, I will try and repeat tonight.
Depends where you live. My postcode covers an entire village of around 50 residences spread over a square mile or so. This includes houses up dirt tracks and various drives and only 2 named streets!I can't think any other country were postcodes are as precise as ours.
What 3 Words is a brilliant idea that only people who need a very specific location seem to get.

Repeating this, paying a bit more attention to what is going on, Satnav it may only be using the initial part of postcode as hinted by the destination showed. So quite a wide area. That would explain a lot.

Google Maps, spot on location (to the building) from calendar event

Tesla Sat Nav, navigation location loaded automatically from the calendar event - format house number, town, county, postcode. Wrong side of the A road/dual carriage way. Ironically, the Chipguard (I can recommend them [as Paintguard] for PPF if you are south coast)pin was my location. I should have shown as sat nav, but you get the idea that it simply takes you to the wrong location in some situations.

This is also the case when manually entered, ie my RG40 1SS instance further up the thread. I bet if I checked, RG40 would cover both locations and it just chose London Road, RWG40.
Yep, this is RG40 which straddles the A329 and M4 at one point road.

So I recon that Tesla sat nav just picks a road of same name somewhere in that major post code area and sets navigation to there. Even if you supply a more precise postcode.
Slightly related - I’ve recently got issues with the voice guidance - specifically at roundabouts - the map shows second exit correctly - but voice says take first exit - sometimes third
has someone else faced this issue
For anyone going to the Bristol SC, then ignore the sat nav when it tells you to turn into the Fed Ex site, go straight on to the end of that road and turn left, then carry on to the end of that road and the Tesla SC is hidden on the left.
The chap in the Model S that beeped at me when I was obviously lost, had also found the place hard to find. The chap in the SC just said that most people had a problem finding them, and they really need to update the position pin on the map...
If you do drive into the Fed Ex place, and carry on far enough into their rear car park, you can just see the rear of the Tesla SC, behind a steel fence, not that it helps you find it.
