Offline map of the city of Birmingham, UK for business and tourist visitors. Download before you go or using your hotel's Wi-Fi and avoid expensive roaming charges. The map runs completely on your device; map display with pan and infinite zoom, routing, search, bookmark, everything. It does not use your data connection at all. Switch your phone function off if you want to!
No ads. All features fully functional on installation, you do not need to buy add-ons or do extra downloads.
The map includes the city area bounded by the M6 motorway to the north, M5 to west and M42 to east and south. It includes the airport, Aston, Edgbaston, Handsworth, Solihull, and Vauxhall. You can show a route to any place for motor vehicle, foot or bicycle; even without a GPS device.
The map is based on OpenStreetMap data, http://www.openstreetmap.org. Data coverage is extremely good. At least 98% of roads and streets are mapped along with name. All city centre buildings are mapped and many suburban buildings too. Gazetteer coverage of things to do and see, transport facilities, hotels, eating places, banks and other amenities is excellent. If we are going to nit-pick, then some amenities such as doctors appears to be low. You can help improve it by becoming an OpenStreetMap contributor. We periodically publish free updates with the latest data.
The app includes a search function and a gazetteer of commonly needed items like hotels, eating places and pharmacies as well as museums and other things to see and do.
You can bookmark places like your hotel for easy return navigation using "My Places".
Turn-by-turn navigation is available on devices running Android 2.3 or higher. If you are using an older phone or don't have a GPS device, you can still show a route between two locations.
Navigation will show you an indicative route and can be configured for car, bicycle or foot. The developers provide it without any guarantee that it is always correct. For example, it does not show turn restrictions - places where it is illegal to turn. Use with care and above all look out for and obey road signs.
Like most small developers, we cannot test a wide variety of phones and tablets. If you have trouble running the application, do email us and we will try to help.
System requirements: An memory card with at least 50 MB of free space. A GPS device is useful but optional.
