1,000 miles away to get a VMG? C'mon, that seems just wrong, as much as I think about it. To calculate VMG, the GPS simply needs a waypoint, regardless of how near or far away.
VMG is just as valid for sailboats as it is for powerboats, if not more so.
I'm a tad unclear as why VMG would be needed when "still in sight of the dock."
