    @bug1

    You're not mentioning what BlueChart you try with GPSMAP 521s. If it's a legacy BlueChart (generation 1) then it will not work. Try with BlueChart g2 or BlueChart g2 Vision.

    If you have a BlueChart (g1) and want to use that in 521s you might try to modify the "gmapsupp.img" file with GMapTool. Enable experimental options. Go to the "Write" tab and adjust the "TRE" paramterers. Some TRE figures to explore here - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    There's the BlueChart g2 Vision VUS019R - Lake Ontario-Montreal that might be what you want.
    Looks like the download links are old and dead there in that thread.

    You already have the link for your unit and compatible charts in post #4 that will give you the answer. Similar link to Garmin is in the post with Ontario v2 and that one also verifies that 521s is compatible. Please check the details in the Garmin INFO links (they are provided for a reason) since all hardware/map compatibility is depending on the specific users unit. We cant cover all combinations in every map thread here at Noeman and it's better to use the main source.

    Locked maps with MapID < 2200 would be unlocked with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or with an unlocker like gimgunlock.
    Locked maps with MapID >= 2200 (GMA authentication problem) should be unlocked with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    BlueChart g2 HCA015R covers most of Canada and should work.
    Otherwise I'll guess that BlueChart g2 Vision VUS020R is closer to what you want.
