Unlock code

After purchasing this software you will receive an unlock code by email within 24 hours (usually much quicker) of your purchase. The unlock code is required for activation of the software. You can start using the software immediately, even before receiving the code as there is a grace period that allows you to try the application (with full functionality).

After completing installation you will see an icon labelled 'Birmingham' on your phone’s main menu. Start it and enter the unlock code. You will only need to enter the registration code once.

Installation Instructions

Download the zip file using your desktop PC. If you are using Windows XP, you need to be logged on as an administrator to run the installer. Extract the contents of the .zip file onto your desktop PC (on Windows XP simply right-click and choose 'Extract all').

You need to have Nokia PC Suite version 6.5 or newer installed. If you have Nokia PC Suite installed just go ahead and try the installation. If you receive an error message saying that ConAPI.DLL can not be found, then it means that your Nokia PC Suite is too old. Please update your Nokia PC Suite to the latest version. It's free, and it has improved substantially from the versions prior to 6.5, therefore it will benefit your daily use as well. The easiest way to find the download page for the latest Nokia PC Suite is to use Google and use the keywords 'Nokia PC Suite download'. We are not including a direct link here as the location changes from time to time.

After you click on Map-Installer.exe (in the folder extracted) this is what you should see:


Click on 'Install' to start. At this point you can make a cup of coffee or tea! It takes a couple of minutes to transfer the 39 MB of maps. No user intervention is required, the the software will take care of everything.

If you ever need to uninstall the software, just connect your phone again, start the installer application and click on 'Uninstall'. That would delete the Birmingham directory from your phone’s memory card (\System\Apps\Birmingham is the full path, in case you prefer to delete it using the phone File Manager application).


Installation is completed!

Memory card reader owners and/or Apple Mac Users

If you don’t want to use Nokia PC Suite or if you can’t as if you have an Apple Mac, for instance, then please install the software by copying the System folder from the zip file to the memory card, using a memory card reader. It takes just seconds! Copy the System folder on top of the existing System folder – you should see a warning asking if you want to overwrite files. No worries, no files will be overwritten. The only new subfolder that will appear on your memory card is the following: Memory card: \System\Apps\Birmingham.

Tip: By default the Communicator’s File Manager does not show you the System folder (not even the memory card’s System folder). This default setting was chosen by Nokia to prevent unexperienced users from accidentally deleting applications. You can change this setting by pressing Menu – Tools – Settings… and selecting
Show System Directory = Yes
from the File Manager.

After completing installation you are ready to start using Birmingham Street Map. The A-Z Birmingham icon will appear on your phones Menu:

Press 'Options' to Enter your unlock code
(which you receive by email after you purchase).

Street Search

The map application has three modes: street search, detailed map and zoom out map. On the street search mode you can find any of the 28776 streets included in the area. Just type the beginning of the name of the street or the most relevant word – articles are usually omitted. If you are close to the correct name on the list, it may be faster to just scroll up or down using the arrow keys.


Street Search view

When the correct street is found and selected (yellow background), press the selection key (Enter). This will take you to the keymap. When you navigate on the keymap, a blue square will show the location of the street currently selected. If you move the square and press Ok you will see that part of the city.

Alternatively you may jump straight to the detailed street map while searching for a street by pressing 'Options' and selecting 'Show Detail Map'

At the detailed map level…

  • You can move around using the arrow keys.
  • You can change to Street search view by pressing Ok or pressing Menu and selecting 'Street Search'
  • Zoom out by pressing Menu and selecting 'Zoom Out'
