Quick question about the Google Maps API

Hi,

Not really a WA product question, but more one about the Google Maps API.

I have a map that is dynamically populated with up to 10 UK addresses.

I am finding that results can vary - from just 1 pin appearing, to the full 10. The postcodes that are missing are found if I go to the Google Maps site directly.

I am asking the API to find the address only by postcode, so I guess my first question is does the API need the full address, or should the post code be sufficient for a rough marker. As the data is input by many different users sometimes it can leave a bit to be desired, but I know that the post code field will always be populated.

Secondly, is the API the same data as Google Maps itself? If not this might explain why some addresses aren't showing.

Cheers
Ian
