Default State / Federal

I finally managed to get all my waypoints on the computer with a federal/state boundary track. However when I transfer them to google earth, the boundary measures 10.3 miles. Looking at these public waypoints south of oops, do you all agree with the boundary?

The boundary is Nautical Miles, you're looking at Statue Miles. 9nm=10.3~sm

Depends on how you have it setup.

Depends on if it is set for statute or nautical. And it will only tell you the distance to the pass not the distance off the beach in the example you provided. Most freshwater units come set in statute miles, most marine units in nautical miles. You should be able to tell fairly easily.

This is really helpful, but could you resend it so it is readable?
