Support Openmtbmap.org Website and Map development


I spend a lot of time working on the maps, working on this homepage and working on the OSM wiki/forums in order so that everyone can enjoy nice maps for mountainbiking. If you want to support me in doing that, then please donate to motivate me to continue developing.

You Get in Return (as a member):

  • Quick Support via comment function ( I usually answer within a few hours, and nearly always under 2 days…)
  • Exclusive maps (openmtbmap & velomap):
    • Single map of Europe including contourlines of complete Europe
    • North America (including contourlines): United States (5 parts), Canada
    • South America country maps for most countries (including contourlines)
    • Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia all including contourlines (and also a contourlines file for all Australia-Oceania)
    • Contourlines for Africa and Asia country maps
    • Contourlines for South-America, Central-America and Africa and Asia and more – you get contourlines for all maps offered here (all except Asia as continent are integrated and simply need to be copied into the map folder).
  • Exclusive Mac OSx format maps (openmtbmap & velomap):
    • All Openmtbmap and Velomap Maps are now also available for Download in gmap/gmapi format. Easy and Quick installation in Garmin Basecamp for Mac OSX.
  • and in future (hopefully) to an online support forum (planned April 2012) and video tutorials (planned soon).

 

Note1: The login only works for either Openmtbmap or Velomap, but the premium downloads are always available on both sites. You can still post comments/questions specific to Velomap in the Velomap section on Openmtbmap and vice versa (this is due to both websites having different databases. People who donate 50€ or more, may email me and I manually copy the login to both sites.)

Note2: if you would like to extend your membership, please login, then you will see the options!

 

Donate via Paypal / Credit Card 

Paypal

After payment you get a link sent by mail which enables you to create an account on Openmtbmap.org.

With this account you can access the premium sections/downloads and you can use the reply function on all pages, I'll try to answer all questions. If you don't receive an email for login within 5 minutes after sending the payment, please look into your Spam folder.

 

Donate 20 € for first year, then 13€ per year

Standard: First year support for €20, then € 13 for each year. You can cancel the payment whenever you like. (needs a credit card linked to your Paypal Account. – use the button under "donate a variable amount" if you have no credit card linked to your paypal account) [s2Member-PayPal-Button level="1" ccaps="" desc="1 Year Openmtbmap.org Membership" ps="openmtbmap.org" cc="EUR" ns="2" custom="openmtbmap.org" ta="20.00" tp="1" tt="Y" ra="13.00" rra=”3" rp="1" rt="Y" rr="1" image="default" output="button" /]

 

Donate a variable Amount

Choose the duration up front. No credit card needed.

 

 

Donate via Bank transfer

Bank_transfer

I prefer to receive donations for Memberships via Paypal because it is easier for me to handle them. For donations not related to a membership, or for people who do not want to pay via Paypal/Credit Card, I have opened up a bank account (which also drops the ~5% paypal commission)

In case you want to receive a membership please wire the money, and send me an email with your requested Username& Password  and your Name. (note as it usually takes 2 working days for the money to be credited to the bank account I will send you your login data 2-4 days later). You can also put your Username and your email into the reference text (replace "@" with "AT" as @ is not allowed on the reference form), this makes it easier for me. (if you don't receive an account within 5 working days, drop me a mail (my email is felix   -AT.   openmtbmap.org).

Once the money is credited to my account, I will send you an email with your login data.

20€ gets you 1 year, 35€ 2 years, 45€ 3 years, 55€ 4 years, 80€ 8 years, 100€ or more lifelong (as long as I run openmtbmap.org) Membership Access.

 

My bank account data is:

Name: Felix Hartmann (Floragasse 9/11, 1040 Wien, Austria)

Bic: RZOOAT2L796 (Attention: twice letter O and not number/digit 0-Zero!!!, so its Rich, Zeta, Opera, Opera, Austria, Transfer, 2, Lisa, 7,9,6)

In case you have a paypal subscription, that's perfect – I value your yearly support.

    Wir machen im November eine Veloreise in Burma/Myanmar, gibt es eine GPS Karte in dieser Region?

  • jiglwood

    Hi Felix,

    Let me firstly say how useful your site has been over the years that we have been hiking.
    Despite trawling the web I cannot find an answer to a few Q that I have about GPS.
    I have an Imac 10.6 but have access to a windows machine if necessary.
    A Garmin Legend HCx.
    We are going on a trekking holiday to Turkey (have downloaded your map) and have downloaded the route (track and Waypoints) from the CARIAN Trail official site. It´s a very large file, but uploads to Google earth and Base Camp (convert) , are no prob.
    Q.1 How do I reduce the track into 20- 1000 point files or read how many points are on a track
    Q.2 I thought I could incorporate the trail as a vector line (I’m in graphics) into the map to send to your site or just upload it to my Garmin, but I can not find any info as how to do this.
    Very grateful for any help.
    Glenn

      Q1: The only tool for this task, that I could imagine would be WinGDB3 version 3.7 — see http://sackman.info
      Q1: Well you cannot do this so easily. What you can do is to create a map that is transparent and consists of the track only. That way you have no limitations on how many points the track is made of. Search for gpx to garmin transparent map – there are a few tutorials on the net about this…

    Hallo Felix,
    woran kann ich denn sehen, von wann das Kartenmaterial ist?
    Vielen Dank für deine Antwort!
    Viele Grüße
    Peter

  • RenedB

    Ich habe einige Karte (ALPS, Baden-Würtenberg) ausprobiert (Garmin GPSMap 60csx. Sowohl mit dem Fahrrad, als auch zu Fuss funktioniert es bestens. Mit dem Navigation findet es sogar kleine Fusswege. In der Regio Titisee-Freiburg, Kanton Luzern und oberhalb der Bodensee waren die Resultaten (fast) perfekt.

    Ich werde OPENMBTMAP weiterempfehlen.

    Hallo,

    Ich habe eine lebenslange Mitgliedschaft bezahlt. Hab mir einen neuen Mac gekauft und wird angezeigt, dass meine mitgliedschaft abgelaufen ist. Hallo? Das kann ja wohl nicht sein.

    Danke für deine Hilfe!!!

    • extremecarver

      Hallo bretoluett, ich kann von dir nur eine Zahlung über 20€ vom 15.05.2013 finden. Hast du noch mit einer anderen email Adresse bezahlt? 20€ ist für 1 Jahr – demnach ist alles korrekt. Schick mit bitte deine weiteren Zahlungsdetails per email wenn du dich nicht irrst…

    Karten noch ans edge/Speicherkarte senden
    ist gemachted.Unter karten/ wecheselen/einstellen sind die nicht zusehen.
    Werd sie uberschrieben??

    • extremecarver

      Die Karten werden immer als gmapsupp.img an die Speicherkarte/GPS gesendet. Im Ordner /garmin/
      Vorinstallierte Karten sollten als gmapsupp.rom oder anders drauf liegen.

      Alte Karten mit gmapsupp.img werden überschrieben – außer du hast sie vorher umbenannt – etwa in mtbdeutschland.img oder ähnlich. Wichtig ist nur das die .img Endung dran bleibt, und im Namen keine Sonderzeichen, Umlaute usw vorkommen.
      Die Karten sollten dann sehrwohl im Setup zu sehen sein.

      Siehe auch Tutorial Karten senden mit Mapsource/Basecamp. http://openmtbmap.org/de/tutorials/send-maps-to-your-gps/mapsource/

  • loopveteraan

    Hallo

    Karten separate gedownload.Stehn auch im garmin edge touring plus.Muss ich noch was machen/einstellen??
    gr John

    • extremecarver

      Ich verstehe die Frage nicht ganz. Du musst die Karten noch ans edge/Speicherkarte senden – siehe Tutorials oben.
      Dazu lies dir bitte die Sektion Autorouting unter About durch. Die Einstellungen dafür müssen etwas geändert werden je nach Bedarf…

    Hallo Felix,

    vorab sollst Du wissen das wir in unserer MTB Gruppe Deine Arbeit sehr schätzen und Du auf diesen Weg auch mehrere Mitglieder hast. OpenMTB hat mir bis heute mit meinem O550t gut über die Berge geholfen. Perfect Job.

    Wollte mir ein neues GPS kaufen, aber das was Garmin da so abliefert ist ja nicht das was man sich von einem namhaften Hersteller in Bezug auf Qualität, Software und Hardware so vorstellt. Felix, O600, Edge, Monterra. Viel zu viel Hardware und keine funktioniert so richtig. Dein letzter Post ist auch schon fast 1 Jähr her.

    Lasse doch mal wieder was von Dir hören wie es mit OpenMTB weitergeht und welche Geräteempfehlung Du geben würdest.

    Grüße Thomas

    • extremecarver

      Naja, ich hab schon ziemlich viel gemacht, wollte aber immer noch irgendwas fertigstellen, bevor ich den nächsten Beitrag schreibe…
      (es sind viele Länder dazugekommen, dazu grabs viele Adaptierungen an mkgmap, bei der Velomap ein weiteres Layout, und vieles mehr…).

      Ich hab das Oregon 600, und mit der neuesten Firmware ist der Empfang okay. Wäre das etrex 30 nicht so langsam, dann würde ich es auch empfehlen – so langsam ist es aber nur zum routen/tracks nachfahren wirklich sehr gut geeignet. Will man lokal umplanen ist das scrollen/zoomen auf der Karte schon etwas eine Zumutung. Die alten Oregon/Dakota wären für mich nie in Frage gekommen, wegen dem Display.

      Edge ist ganz gut, halt leier etwas limitiert (von der Software stark beschnitten). Monterra kenne ich nicht.
