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.

    mapinstall no longer works for garmin fenix 7. support says it’s an outdated program and no longer works with new devices and will not even update. connecting the fenix 7 to the pc, mapinstall does not find it as a device to install the map.
    how do i now, to transfer the map from the computer to the fenix 7? Thank you

  • doorten


    Thanks for the maps!
    I was looking around in the world of maps and became a member again.
    But, as far as I can discover, not the whole world is covered.
    Am I right or do miss something?

    Cor Doorten

    • extremecarver

      The whole world is covered by continent maps (even Antarctica). Additionally about 160 countries are covered. For the other countries you need to use continent maps instead.

    Hi, I’ve just renewed the subscription, but I can’t download maps, why?

  • bicyclejim

    Hello. I was just charged 18 as annual auto pay, invoice #02652. After logging in, website says my membership is expired and I need to donate. Please do the following:
    1) Reinstate my PAID membership so I can have access to all the maps
    2) Take me off the automatic payments.

    Thank you.

    Hallo, ich habe von hier eine Velofrance runtergeladen und entzippt, dann das gmapsupp umbenannt und in den Garminordner kopiert, so wie sonst auch. Eine ältere MTB-Karte wird angezeigt, die neue Velofrance taucht aber nicht in der Liste auf.
    Ich habe die nonunicode geladen.
    Irgendeine Idee?
    Danke vorab und Gruß

    • extremecarver

      Jedes Karte darf nur einmal installiert sein – sprich du musst die alte velofrance erst entfernen bevor du die neue velofrance sendest.

      • contessa

        Moin, die MTB-Karte war nicht das Problem, aber tatsächlich gab es noch eine alte Velokarte. Danke für den Hinweis!

        • extremecarver

          du kannst immer velo und mtb desselben Landes installierne (nur wenn Höhenlinien separater Download aufpassen – Höhenlinien dürfen dann nur einmal am besten separat von den Karten – übertragen werden. MapInstall erkennt wenn ein Land schon vorhanden ist und überschreibt es.

    • extremecarver

      ah – falls keine ältere velofrance vorhanden ist – dann hast du a) zu viele Karten installiert b) eine andere Karte welche dieselbe 4stellige FID nutzt (nicht von mir) installiert.

  • letyonline

    Salve Felix,
    ho rinnovato l’abbonamento premium ma ho visto che la mappa dell’Italia è solo nella versione standard.
    Hai in programma di aggiungerla?
    Grazie M. Letizia Grella

    • extremecarver

      Any country which uses latin only – has only the standard map available – which is in Non unicode. However the 10m contourlines or other things are available on top. The English version is in that case only available for the continent – meaning Europe.

  • Radlcat

    Hallo Felix,
    ich habe die Afrika Nicht-unicode Karte runterladen auf mein Macbook, um die Datei dann auf eine SD Karte für meinen Garmin 400 zu kopieren.
    Was bei Spanien gut funktionierte, klappt hier leider nicht. ich bekomme immer eine Fehlermeldung, dass die Datei 4,8GB zu groß sei bei einer SD Karte von 32GB.

    Wo liegt mein Fehler?

    Danke und Gruß,
    Kri / Radlcat

    • extremecarver

      FAT32 – ich habe den Afrika Kontinent Download nun entfernt – da er zu groß für das Dateisystem ist. Du muss die Windows oder OSx Version am PC installieren – und die Karte dann mit (Basecamp) MapInstall senden.

  • Stephen Yates

    Hi Felix,
    I have enjoyed using your maps over the years but now age has caught up with me and I need to cancel my account, can you advise me how this is done, I hope I have helped to keep you good work going.


  • elmasdani

    I downloaded the OPENMTB for my garmin edge 1000, but the track has a very thin line and I can’t figure out which paths to choose. What can I do?

    • extremecarver

      You need to switch the track to active / trackback – then it will be wider. Or use a route instead – while routing it will be much wider. On edge x40 you could edit the theme file and make tracks wider – but on edge 1000 there is no such setting as far as I know.

  • esmlatic

    I installed Europe_18.12.2022_UC_ENG and croatia_01.11.2022
    Seems like towns in Europe version does not have proper Croatia names.
    Also same with Slovenian names on Europe map.
    Am I missing some here?

    • extremecarver

      what do you mean with proper? English of course uses english translation for any name that exists in English – or alternatively it will use intl, german, french, spanish, italian before it uses the local name. If you want local names – use the local language. The English version is meant for people not understanding the local language.

      • esmlatic

        I donwloaded europe_18.12.2022_NU_Local.
        On Non Unicode version there is no issue.
        See screenshot.

        Non Unicode version runs fine to me and I’m happy. 🙂
        But for the other, if someone needs Unicode version can run in some issues.

        • extremecarver

          Non Unicode will only work within latin1 using regions – so not in Greece for example. There you need unicode. And I still don’t know what you mean with issue, as far as I can tell everything is as expected.

          • esmlatic

            Pay attention on names of town names.
            For example, town “Opatija” in europe_18.12.2022_NU_Local has different name. It’s named “Abbazia” in europe_18.12.2022_UC_ENG.
            It’s visible on screenshots.
            That is the issue.

  • angelo

    Hallo, after many years that every maps i could installed, now when i try to intall the map, appears a notice in the middle of my desktop, (see foto in attachment) about file system error -1073741819
    i?ve tried even to switch off my AVG antivirus
    What’s happen?
    Thank you for tue answer

    • extremecarver

      The download itself is likely broken. I guess it’s the local language version? I will render it again. This message is not related to antivirus (or the problem is that on redownload – you got a cached broken version).

  • Jude

    I’m changing my payment method as I’m about to cancel my current credit card, however I could not find the page to change my payment method. Would you please kindly tell me where I can find the billing page so that I can change my credit card info?

    • extremecarver

      As you are paying via paypal – you need to add your new credit card there – then remove your old one (don’t forget removing the old one).

  • ruewolf

    Hallo Felix,

    ich weiß gar nicht mehr wie viele Jahre ich schon deine Karten nutze. Mein Garmin und deine Maps waren und sind immer noch ständige Begleiter auf Wanderungen in Nordamerika, Nicaragua und in vielen Ländern Europas.
    Ich muß mich hier einfach einmal für deine großartige Arbeit bedanken.

    • extremecarver

      Freut mich sehr zu hören, ich wünsche dir weiterhin viel Spaß – vor allem da ja etwa Nordamerika und Afrika viel schlechter gemapped sind in OSM – aber trotzdem deine Zwecke erfüllen.

  • Berndbrueckner

    Ich möchte gerne das Abo verlängern. Das funktioniert aber nur für 18 Euro. Die Verlängerung steht aber für 15 Euro.
    Wie funktioniert das?
    Gruß Bernd

    • extremecarver

      Nein die Verlängerung per Abo ist pro Folgejahr 15€ – die einmalige oder erstmalige Verlängerung ist 18€ – das ist korrekt so.

  • Carma

    Hi zusammen
    ich habe die openmtb Spain heruntergeladen und installiert (MacBook Air M1, Monterey). Auch nach vielem Hin- und Herkopieren der Konturdateien, löschen des Tile-Cache, Neuinstallation der Karte, sehe ich keine Höhenlinien.
    Nehme ich die alte Karte von 2019, dann funktionieren die Höhenlinien sofort. Was mache ich falsch?
    Vielen Dank!

    • extremecarver

      Schau zuerst das die Struktur der Dateien ident ist – sprich die 6* und 7* Ordner im selben Ordner analog der alten Karte liegen. Dann die info.xml austauschen – dann den Cache löschen.
      2019 waren die Höhenlinien noch integriert – nachdem deutlich bessere Quelldaten zugänglich waren ist die Größe der Höhenlinien deutlich gewachsen und ich habe sie ausgelagert.

  • schenkie8

    I installed OpenMTBmap non unicode Europe in Basecamp on my Macbook pro but I don’t see anything when I open the map in Basecamp.
    What went wrong?

  • thomas001le

    Ich mag deine Karten wirklich, jedoch begegnen mir ab und zu Wege die mit “fixme” markiert sind, z.b. Ich weiss nicht genau ob dein style oder das OSM tagging hier gefixt werden soll. Der verlinkte Weg sieht aber nicht falsch getaggt aus. Was wirklich ärgerlich bei diesen “fixme” Wegen ist, ist, dass sie wirklich schlecht sichtbar sind auf meinem etrex 30x. Kann man da vielleicht etwas machen? Vielleicht den Stil dieser “fixme” Wege anpassen?

    • extremecarver

      Fixme hat oft eine Beschreibung – also nict fixme=yes sondern fixme=XYZ – das ganze ist etwas schwer da ich ja XYZ nicht verstehe beim Kartenerstellen – daher werden diese Wege abhängig von den anderen TAgs dann oft weniger sichtbar in der Karte dargestellt. Wenn du den Weg kennst und es korrekt erscheint, dann entferne den fixme Tag.
      Allerdinsg ist der von dir verlinkte Weg access=private – also nur für Eigentümer/bzw mit Erlaubnis von Eigentümer nutzbar – daher ist der Weg nur angedeutet in der Karte. Angenommen jeder darf zu Fuß oder mit Rad diesen Weg nutzen, aber nur der Eigentümer darf mit Motorfahrzeug dort hin so ist der Access=private falsch und es müsste evtl ein motor_vehicle=private Tag stattdessen an den Weg.

    Hola Felix.
    No veo los mapas de Mauritania, Senegal y Gambia para poderlos descargar…?
    Gracias por tu trabajo..¡¡¡
