Open your mapsource programme and click on "view" then in the "go to" bit type N52 11.315 E1 00.333 This I believe, is the co-ordinates for the entrance to the tomo business park. You could then transfer it to your 2610.
Go to google maps and type in the co-ordinates and you get a view of what looks like the business park. According to google it's off Creeting road in Stowbridge. Are you by any chance looking for Arboricultural Machinery

Errr .. I can see the problem ..

You are on the road (no PC. laptop etc) and want to find this place.. the problem is you have no 'address' (as the GPS defines it).

What you 'need' is the street name .. and preferably a number in that street .. (or best is a lat/long!)

Creeting road (as given by Jim) is a good start!

I managed to find it by searching the web and finding Tomo business park was on Creeting road, then searched for Creeting road on the 2610.
I was at home so easy enough to find using the internet, if I had been out and about it would be alot more trouble.
I was actually looking to get my wood chipper repaired but Tomo business park was a bit to far to travel for me.

Just a small tip for you. (which you may know already) If you had been out on the road and had asked the same question. If you got the co-ordinates from someone then marked a waypoint on your 2610 at where you are already, you can then edit the co-ordinates on your new waypoint and input the waypoints I gave you. This makes your new waypoint into the waypoint for the entrance to Tomo business park and your 2610 will direct you to it from your present position.
