    Since Eagle Plains along the Dempster Hwy in the Yukon doesn't technically show up as a city or village on any map, including any of the Garmin maps, does anyone have the exact GPS coordinates?

    Tap, tap, tap... is this thing on? :dunno

    Perhaps this forum doesn't get used too much since I find it difficult to believe that someone around here with a GPS who has been up the Dempster Hwy doesn't have the coordinates of Eagle Plains in a saved track. :huh

    Huh. Looks like I'll have to ride up there myself to get the coordinates. :lol3

    Am I correct in assuming garmin has no maps for the yukon? I want to get the north american version 8 (I think) for the Alaska trip, but dont see the yukon included:deal

    Eagle Plains is N66 22.355 W136 43.163

    I live in Inuvik, NT so I ride the Dempster all the time. I use the Canadian Map in my 276C and all the roads in the Yukon/NT are on it.
