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!

There are 2 Options

1. First year support/access to downloads for €20, then € 13 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, 35€ for 2 years ... and so on. See the dropdown box.

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


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.

    Hi there,

    Can you please let me know whether map on this site can be installed on Garmin Fenix 6 watch? If so, how should it be load onto fenix watch?

      Welche Zahlungserinnerung meinst du genau? Wenn du eingeloggt bist (Cookie ist 1 Jahr gültig) – dann kommst du gar nicht auf diese Seite hier – Nur wenn du dich neu einloggst wirst du nach dem einloggen hierher umgeleitet.

    wo finde ich die setup.exe bzw. den WINDOWS Installer?
    Habe die Karten und Höhenlinien heruntergeladen und entpackt, den Installer aber nicht gefunden

    It seems that seamark:type=harbour is rendered wrong in the MTB-map. It is rendered as water though the tag is used to mark the entire area of the harbour, not just the water-part.

    For example, this harbour in Sweden, lake Vättern is displayed wrong.

    • extremecarver

      Well I never looked at this tag. so it’s not rendered wrong. It’s not rendered at all. The problem is the leisure=marina. I did not notice that the definition of that one is changed: “Caution. This tag was in the past used to tag only the water where the boats were moored. There is still some disagreement and confusion but OSM Carto marks a marina using a dotted blue line which is not filled in unless suitable tagging. The water area can be tagged with natural=water”

      I actually don’t see a good way to render marina at all as an area. Maybe I should render it as a way instead? That’s how it’s done for Mapnik. Or I simply drop rendering it at all.
      I do not understand the place you linked however – because besides of docks and berths – the harbour definition is as follows: “A natural or artificially improved body of water providing protection for vessels, and providing anchoring and docking facilities.
      Mark the entrance of the harbour, between the mole heads, ~100 meters seawards.”

      So I would understand to fully render it as water – and just layer docks which should have a building=yes on top of it…

      I think for right now – I will just stop rendering leisure=marina. I hope all water areas inside are not actually water=yes – and no leftovers from the old way of tagging… As for seamark:type=harbour. I think it’s too complicated for an outdoor map to include it. That’s something specialised for nautical maps. I will keep on ignoring it. Especially as the definition itself is too confusing (for me at least).

      Actually this one kinda sucks – because they changed the definition without voting on it.. Yes I agree the new kinda makes more sense if you want to have a nautical map, but they could have just added the specialised tagging without changing definitions. The whole harbour/marina stuff is way too much for me to add to my maps. I only render small parts of the sea features. I cannot include all of the openseamap stuff anyhow due to limitations. I render buoys and some stuff also useful for general orientation – but will not / cannot have my map go into detail of all that nautical stuff.

    • extremecarver

      but thanks for telling me about the mistake in the map. sorry if the solution of not rendering leisure=marina is not what you expected. The more important thing is IMHO water vs no water should be rendered more correctly now.
