I have done it many times and never had a problem.

Came a cropper at a cache that needed a projection from a particular spot of 1,733 feet due east (True)

So I go "Waypoints" > "Options" > "Project Waypoint" > enter bearing of 90° and distance of 1,733 feet > "Next" > "Save" (the North Reference was already set to "True")

Next the "Waypoint" screen appears and the WPT I just created conveniently appears on top of the list - tap that and press "Go To", head off to the location and I promptly find myself 145 metres from where I should have been!

The caching friend who was with me and using a Garmin did the same thing and ended up within 10 metres of the correct location :))

Is there an issue with the Projection function that I have missed on this forum?
