ZIP Code Targeting
Geo-targeting can be established at the ZIP code level, with up to 10,000 targets in each campaign or ad group.

Other updates include more details in the Import Summary view and advanced options in Sync Settings to filter the campaigns you want to sync, including the ability to copy a list of campaigns from a Word doc, email or Excel.
