Hi Andy, It isn't possible to convert the postcodes in to towns.

Hi Cory, it is average speed ... its not that smart!

Excellent tool! Perfect for analytical purposes - I use this regularly to build reports on customer data around our retail stores.
One question though, is the speed (or can it be) calculated from speed limits on roads or is it purely an average speed thing?

Brilliant. Was pointed to this site last week by my boss to work out catchment areas and this added function actually outputs too!

I asked if it was possible to have a mashup of the postcodes inside radius and how far can i travel and hey presto Free Map Tools delivers the goods. Brilliant tool. Allows me to set up sales areas with great ease and accuracy. Thanks again :)
