GPS in the Netherlands

We plan on renting a car and driving throughout Belgium and the Netherlands. In the States entering the address into my GPS works well where as in Great Britain entering the postal code does a great job in locating my desired destination. How about the Netherlands? Address or postal code or something different? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I don't want to get lost :)

Postal code works fine on TomTom at least. Dutch postal codes (format 9999ZZ) cover just a small number of buildings, and only one street.

I've used various Garmins over quite a bit of the Netherlands over the years and never been let down with postcode and house number or just postcode.
