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...)

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.)

Pay via 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


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 Membership Access.


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 1.1.2015 (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.

    I’m already a member, and I’d like to donate more. I don’t see how to get the donate button to send me to the payment page

      Oh – what happens when you click on it? You mean the paypal button I assume? Can you send me some screenshots maybe to my email: extremecarver ….. wich show the problem? Which browser are you using?

    ich habe die Karte openmtbmap_france heruntergeladen und in Basecamp und auf einer SD Karte für mein Garmin Edge 810 installiert. Die Karte kann ich auf dem Garmin öffnen. Einen Track kann ich an das Garmin senden und dieser wird unter Strecken aufgeführt. Soweit ist alles ok. Sobald ich nun auf dem Garmin die Navigation für diese Strecke starte erscheint nach ein paar Sekunden folgende Meldung “Routenberechn.fehler. Auf den Karten sind keine routingfähigen Strassen in diesem Gebiet vorhanden”. Welche Schritte muss ich noch ausführen?
    Ich arbeite mit einen Mac “El Capitan”

    Liebe Grüsse, Bike-Rose

      Normalerweise kann man nur mit Routen Autorouting benutzen, beim edge 800 und 810 gibt es aber die Track Ausnahme. So richtig weiß ich nicht wie das funktioniert – es geht bei geringer Abweichung schon. Aber evtl ist der Track einfach zuweit entfernt von der nächsten Straße/Weg.
      Probier mal eine Route in Basecamp zu erstellen – die dann per Rechtsklick in einen Track wandeln – und den Track dann fürs Routing am 810 zu benutzen. Dass sollte gehen. Sie auch hier:
      Falls da die Einstellungen einen Weg blockieren – gehts natürlich auch nicht.

    We have attempted to load maps for France on our garmin 810 Edge. We went through the process as described to install garmin base camp and then installed the maps. The maps show on the base camp on my computer. We then tried to move the maps onto the GPS following the online instructions. The map do not show on the GPS. Can you advise how to get the maps from the base camp onto the gps and how we can check to see that it is on the gps?

    • extremecarver

      Watch out to select the maps dragging – not clicking. And watch out for two shadings – if only lightly shaded you only got contourlines not the maps for that area. It’s two layers.
      There is a menu for card setup – look that the map (may show up “twice” – once contourlines – once maps itself) are activated. And if you device is new – make sure to get GPS fix (go outside!).

    Bin gerade wieder dabei unseren SommerRadUrlaub vorzubereiten.
    Danke für Dein Angebot!! Ohne dieses wären unsere bisherigen Touren nicht so erfolgreich gewesen.
    Damit ich es ja nicht vergesse, verlängere ich gleich den Account.
