The Yukon government maintains a set of e-charts for use by boaters and other camping enthusiasts. You can use these charts in LOWRANCE HDS10 model chartplotter devices.
These e-charts show Yukon and nearby areas of British Columbia:
- roads; and
The e-charts are based on information found in the federal government's 1:50,000 National Topographic Series (NTS).
To use these e-charts:
- Download the file YukonCharts_v1.at5.
- Unzip and copy the file to your chartplotter's memory card.
- Make sure that your chartplotter is set to "Lowrance" and not "Navionics." You can usually find this option in the chart data section of your chartplotter's settings.
Charts should appear as soon as you insert the memory card into the chartplotter. If this does not happen, try zooming in to the Yukon areas on the chart until water features begin to appear.
Yukon e-charts for boaters do not replace NTS maps; use them together.
These charts are not compatible with Garmin or some other models of Lowrance chart plotter devices.
We built the charts for devices used in the Government of Yukon. We're aware of the issues of pinning data to a specific model of a product from a single vendor. However, Lowrance and Garmin do not provide a generic chart format or have any published methods for conversion. We are not aware of any 3rd-party tools for conversion.
