Hi Martin,

I tried to answer that before (you send me the same question off list) 
but your email account does not seem to be valid. All emails returned...

Unfortunately there is no very common tagging system for postal_codes. 
The postal_code multipolygons are used mostly in Germany but only in 
very rare cases in other countries. This info is some months old so that 
might have been changed.
Zip codes are not very well supported by our knowledge of the garmin 
format so I didn't invest much time to investigate the best combination 
of parameters.
So maybe some of you can evalute which osmfilter parameters give best
