Re: Garmin GPS 72H and VMG?

I just discovered an easy method for creating the far away waypoint (as discussed in this thread) on my new Garmin 72H to assist in seeing VMG to windward.

The 72H has a neat feature under Waypoints called "Project waypoint", wherein from the CURRENT location (but I think you need to initially mark/create a waypoint for that spot) you can "relocate" that waypoint (it doesn't actually create a new/additional waypoint but just changes the position of the one you're projecting!) by XX distance (say 2000 Nm) on XXX bearing. The Save.

Simple!
