It is called projecting a waypoint. The first problem is going to be your gps probable only lets you put in the distnace as decmiles of a mile. So convert 515 feet to a mile. What I would suggest is uing a compas to get the bearing and then just pacing it off, or us a really long string LOL. But look for how to project a waypoint on you GPS. What GPS do you have always state that.

With my Garmin GPS76, either the waypoint projection feature or the Measure Distance function on the map page can be used for bearing and distance problems. When I need better than .01 mile precision, I set the Units to metric and use the measure distance function, which measures distances less than 1000 meters in 0.1 meters. I use a conversion program on my PDA to do the necessary math.
