    If those are the addresses the Post Office uses, any mapping app should find them. Garmin Mobile is a turn by turn GPS app with a free trial. You can download it from Garmin's website.

    Some navigation apps offer "Mark GPS location" so you can mark the GPS location then use it for mapping and navigation.

    We never tested our app LifeInPocket in your area but we are interested in finding out if it would work in "goofy addresses" area. May be you can give it a try then get back to us.

    I know non of the app can understand this strange address format and we don't even bother to try.

    What we suggested was to use the "Mark GPS/Parking feature by following below steps,

    LifeInPocket Home > Mark(Icon)> Mark Parking/Current Location (name it home)

    Then,

    Mark > Previous Marked Location > Home

    The try both "Map It" and "Take Me There" and see what happens.
