Project Waypoint Command

The Project Waypoint Command creates a new waypoint a fixed distance and bearing from the selected waypoint.

  1. Select a single waypoint.
  2. Then, do one of the following:
    • On the Waypoint menu, click Project Waypoint.
    • Right-click the selected waypoint, and click Project Waypoint.

The Project Waypoint window will appear. Enter the distance and bearing to the new waypoint, and click Project. The Edit Waypoint dialog will appear, allowing you to label the projected waypoint.
