Using the Nokia Map Loader on the 6121 Classic

I ran into a problem trying to use the Nokia Map Loader v2.0.2 with my new 6121 classic. I:

  • Installed the Nokia Mapping application on the phone.
  • Installed the Nokia Map loader on my PC
  • Connected the cellphone to the PC using the USB cable and set it to PC Suite mode

And then the Map Loader just sat there saying "Waiting for device".

It turns out the solution was the load some maps onto the cellphone through another source, such as the phones network connection. In my case I already had some map data on another cellphone, so I copied the entire contents of the cities folder over to the new cellphone.
