If you have a PDA for paperless caching and use Cachemate it will do the projection for you. You can also do a projection easily with GSAK.

<--- Below "User Info" box theres another box that says "Projections" feel free to use that. Razz

Or why not project right on the GPS.
While on the "waypoint page" press "menu" select "project waypoint" enter distance/degrees from the waypoint you selected and new waypoint is created.

Here is a little tip for those of you that use CacheMate. I wish I knew this when I was on the Island last summer. If you are searching for a cache that requires you to project a way point CacheMate will do the math for you. With the starting point selected (the way point given in the cache description) touch the top of the screen to drop down the options menu then touch Calc. and select Project way point. Enter the bearing and distance and there is your way point.

This is an old post, I know, but I am reading new ones every day. I knew projecting waypoints was possible somehow, either via the GPS or the PDA. Now, this answers the question. I just tried it on my PDA and now feel confident I can do in in the field, should the requirement arise.
