Support 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 pay a bit 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.


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 pay 50€ or more, may email me and I manually copy the login to both sites.)

Note2: If you paid in the past (so you already have an account) and would like to extend your membership, please login, then you will see the prices for extension/reactivation of your account!


Pay with Paypal

Just follow the Paypal Button. After payment you get a link sent by mail which enables you to create an account on

If you don't receive an email for login within 5 minutes after sending the payment, please look into your Spam folder.

There are 2 Options

1. First year support/access to downloads for €20, then € 15 for each year. You can cancel the payment whenever you like on Paypal. (needs a credit card linked to your Paypal Account.). If you don't cancel before the year is over, the payment will continue each year - It's a subscription.

2. Pay for a fixed term. 20€ for 1 year, 37€ for 2 years ... and so on. See the dropdown box.

Please select your desired type of membership. - Bitte Zahlungsoptionen zur Mitgliedschaft auswählen.

Please choose your country of residence - Bitte Land auswählen wo du wohnst (Hauptwohnsitz)


Pay with Credit or Debit Card

Just choose amount/time and fill out - your username/password is directly created! I actually never get your credit card data - Your credit card information is securely handled via Stripe. Also possible to pay with Visa debit and Mastercard debit card, but not with Maestro. (I'm sorry that I need to ask for your location - this is due to EU VAT laws effective since 2018). Your Account is created instantly after Payment.

Checkout Options / Bezahloptionen
Create Profile - Deine Daten
password strength indicator
Billing Method / Kreditkarte
Billing Address - Deine Wohnadresse
Checkout / Bezahlen

Pay with bank transfer

Sorry - thanks to the EU VATMOSS rules I cannot offer payment via simple Bank transfer for now. There is one workaround though - you can open up a Paypal Account - wire money to it, and then use it to pay (no subscriptions - one time payments only without credit card).

I really dislike this situation - but cannot change it for now as otherwise my administrative burden is far too high. I'm not a fan of PayPal at all (that's why the default gateway is Stripe) - but for now there is no better possibility if you have no credit card - or don't want to use your credit card online.

For people who do not want to pay via Paypal/Credit Card, I have opened up a bank account. In case you want to receive a membership please wire the money, and send me an email with your requested Username. (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).

Once the money is credited to my account, I will send you an email with your login data ( 2-4 days later). You can also put your requested 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



My bank account data is:

new bank account data soon. Please don't use the old account data anymore - due to neu EU Vat regulations as of 1.1.2018 (see more about it on #Vatmoss on Twitter for example). I am working hard on offering a new solution to pay/donate via bank transfer.

    Oben vergessen: Welcher Layout-Typ ist für das Garmin Edge 1040 am besten geeignet?

  • Road Runner

    Hallo Felix,
    habe heute die Alpenkarte einmal im Normal-Version und einmal im Premium-Version runtergeladen und dann die Image-Datei auf ein Garmin Edge 1040 kopiert. Dort werden nur nur mit der Image-Datei der Normal-Version die Höhenlinien angezeigt. Habe jeweils nur die eine oder die andere auf dem Edge gehabt. Habe ich da einen Schritt in der Doku für die Premium-Version übersehen?

    • extremecarver

      Wenn du die gmapsupp.img Downloads nimmst, sind die Höhenlinien ein extra Download damit man die Karten schneller updaten kann. Bei der Widnows/OSx Version sind die Höhenlinien integriert da man sie am PC ja auch braucht. Bezüglich Layout – alle wide basierten je nachdem was du möchtest (wide, wide legacy, easy, hiking, topo, winter)

    Guten Tag
    Habe neuen PC Windows 11
    Mußte Base Camp neu installieren
    Und habe die Karten Alps/Italy/Bayern neu heruntergeladen und und als IMG installiert.
    Einstellung wide
    Auf allen Karten Schriftgröße kaum lesbar.
    Was mache ich falsch?

  • Thorsten Wecklein

    Hallo Felix,
    wie kann ich denn die Premiummitgliedschaft wieder kündigen? Irgendwie finde ich nichts und drehe mich immer im Kreis.
    Du machst eine tolle Arbeit, aber die Karten nutze ich schon seit Jahren nicht mehr, da ich nur noch mit iPad und iPhone arbeite und mit meiner Garminuhr alles habe, was ich benötige.
    Viele Grüße

    Guten Morgen Felix, ich bin seit einiger Zeit Premium Mitglied. Wie kann ich meine Zahlungsmethode ändern?
    Viele Grüße Hartmut
