Note1: The login only works for either Velomap or Openmtbmap (depending where you pay), but the premium downloads are always available for both Openmtbmap/Velomap from the site you paid. 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.)

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.

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, 37€ 2 years, 50€ 3 years, 65€ 4 years, 100€ 8 years, 200€ 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 1.1.2018 (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.

    Kannst du mir helfen?

    Changing Colors of maps

    I am attempting to change some of the colors of maps, like making the ocean blue rather than white using Typwiz6.

    I can change the colors in a .typ file, but so far, has not been able to figure out how to get the change to show up on my Tactix Delta. Have modifed the .typ files believed was in use in the /garmin/VeloMap/denmark directory, also tried the velomap_denmark_change_layout.exe – but so far no luck.

    How do I modify the colors on the active map on my watch and in Basecamp ?


    • extremecarver

      The ocean is always blue – if not there is a map data problem and the ocean is missing!
      you need to modify the .typ that is in use – then afterwards send the map. Do not use the change layout.exe afterwards – it will restore the original .typ file. Same will happen on map update.

      • Bodstrup

        Still experimenting, but it appears that a given Velo/OpenMBT map, that shows buildings, ocean on my Montana 700i – does not on my Tactix Delta.

        I modify the .typ using typwiz – opening the map loaded in Basecamp, then do an install. That works fine for the Montana.

        Downloading an alternative map to compare.

        I have map detail settings set to ‘most’


        • Bodstrup

          I can confirm, at even when downloading a ready-to-go .img file from here or other sites, I see the buildings on my Montana 700i, but not on the Tactix Delta/Fenix 6x.

          Have gone through converting all polygons to 16 bit just to be sure, but no luck. Looks like the watch is filtering buildings.

          Any clue ?

        • extremecarver

          do not use details at most – usually normal is much better. The VeloMap has the buildings as a separate layer – so you need to enable them / send them included or separate. The OpenMTBMaps have the buildings in the map so they definitely should show up – but maybe Tactix Delta uses a 64 colour display like the Fenix? Then use the Fenix layout for them. The buildings are not visible for Fenix without using Fenix layout – as they resort to white. The fenix definitely shows buildings – I have a Fenix 6x Pro for debugging myself and use it from time to time with the maps.

    I seem to be having some problems with the new versions of the maps. Having downloaded the latest versions of GB and Spain to basecamp I noticed that I had to zoom into 0.2miles instead 0f 0.5miles before all minor roads, tracks and footpaths etc are displayed. Not exactly a catastrophe but still inconvenient.

    The second difference is more awkward. Having downloaded the Spainish map, velo version, to both my Etrex 20 and Etrex 30 garmins, there seems to be a problem at certain magnifications. As I zoom in the roads are being overwritten by something. It looks to me as though the buildings are not scaling correctly at some intermediate zoom levels but are displaying at a larger scale and overwriting other information such as roads. At a larger magnification such as 500ft the buildings appear to display correctly.

    Is there anything I can do to correct either of these features?


    • extremecarver

      could you please show me a picture or screenshot of the second problem. The first is intentional – I changed the zoom scales because in Europe things got to crowded – I did this 6-7 months ago – I wrote about it in the newsletter/frontpage.

  • fantoux

    Hallo Extremcarver,
    mir gelingt es nicht per PayPal meine Zahlung abzuschließen.
    Woran kann das liegen?
    gruß fantoux

    • extremecarver

      Hmm, du bist der zweite innerhalb von ein paar Tagen. Könntest du mir bitte antworten wie du es versuchst? Welcher Betrag, und welcher Browser – und wenn möglich Screenshot von der Fehlermeldung. Im Prinzip geht es für die meisten – aber irgendeine Kombination aus Software/Browser/Land/Betrag scheint Probleme zu machen – nur ich weiß nicht welche.

  • Andreas Ihlefeld

    Leider finde ich keine velomap von ganz Europa mehr. Ich will auch gar nicht ganz Europa installieren, sondern mir
    grenzüberschreitend die verschiedenen Kacheln (F,B,NL,D) auf dem Navi installieren. So müsste ich pro Land einen eigenen Kartensatz installieren. Gibt es einje weniger umständliche Möglichkeit?

  • ulgr

    Hallo, ich habe noch für ein Jahr die Premiummitgliedschaft möchte aber danach diese nicht mehr. Was muss ich machen, damit das automatische Abbuchen via PayPal nicht mehr stattfindet?


    Wie lautet die Mail-Adresse um an Velomap Fragen zu stellen. Auf der Homepage ist dies nicht sofort ersichtlich!!


    Ich habe folgende Frage:
    Das Kartenlayout, dass ans GPS gesendet werden soll. Wie muss ich das vorab festlegen/einstellen? Am PC nutze ich die Version “Desktop”. Auf dem GPS soll “Velo wide” sinnvoll sein. Muss ich vor dem Transfer zum GPS auf “Velo wide” umstellen?

    • extremecarver

      wenn du velo_wide nutzen möchtest – dann ja. Dafür gibt es ja die change_layout.exe um das schnell zu ändern. du kannst auf meinen Kommentar antworten per email. Ich bevorzuge Hilfe via Kommentar statt per email. Im Impressum steht sonst auch noch die email.

  • plm2000

    ich bin premiummitglied, bekomme aber immer die aufforderung zu verlängern; und ich kann nur im velomapberreich downloaden. kann das bitte geändert werden . frohes neues jahr plm2000

  • liedet

    Hallo, ich erhalte nach download der Velomap Karten die folgenden Infos vom PC: a) Datenträgerimage beschädigt und b) Karte wird als Malware ausgewiesen – Virus ?


    • extremecarver

      Hallo liedet,
      False Positive. Du kannst aber überprüfen ob die Code Signature okay ist (rechtsklick auf die Datei wenn fertig heruntergeladen) – bzw die MD5 Summe stimmt. So weißt du dann ob der Download korrekt war.
