Find Yukon e-charts for boaters

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:

  • lakes;
  • rivers;
  • creeks;
  • wetlands;
  • roads; and
  • campgrounds.

The e-charts are based on information found in the federal government's National Topographic Series (NTS).

To use these e-charts:

  1. Download the file YukonCharts_v1.at5.
  2. Unzip and copy the file to your chartplotter's memory card.
  3. 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 doesn't happen, try zooming in to Yukon areas on the chart until water features begin to appear.

Yukon e-charts for boaters do not replace NTS maps; use them together.

Compatibility

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 are aware of the issues of pinning data to a specific model of a product from a single vendor. However, Lowrance and Garmin don't provide a generic chart format or have any published methods for conversion. We are not aware of any third-party tools for conversion.
