# Using progections with magellan 315

When using projections on the magellan 315 I can enter the Baring and distance but I can only enter the distence in miles. Dose anyone know of a way to enter the distence in feet?mtilley1@cox.net

It seems the only way to do it is to convert your feet to miles. Since the 315 does projection to one-hundreth of a mile (52.8 feet) you're stuck with 50 foot increments for the projection.

I always over estimated the distance, example if I want to go 500ft I would put in half a mile. I figure it this way I know what I want to get to, but might be out of sight of it for a while. I then follow the cross track error and eventually get to where I want to get to.

Does this make sense?
