Waypoint projection feet vs. miles

Recommended Posts

I'm using cachly to project a waypoint 177 degrees for .47 miles.  It placed it in the middle of a road (I know the cache is in the woods) and within .1 radius of another cache, so I went online and ran the same projection (using a projection tool from the Internet) and got different results.  I then projected in cachly using 2481.6 feet instead of the .47 miles and got the same result as the online projection. I hesitate to post any coordinate info in the forum as it's a puzzle final. I tried it with a couple different starting points and same inconsistent answer.  I also experimented and used 1 mile and then 5280 feet and got a different result for each of those. 

I'm running the latest available version of cachly and I run on an iPhone with iOS10.2.
