Waypoint distance is showing wrng distance

Hi

When adding  new waypoint, the distance shows 6284 km even though the coordintes are the same as the published coordinates.

Steps:
Enter  a cache (EG GCAHMXQ)
Press Waypoints
Press Insert
See attached picture.
The distance shown should be 0 km from published coordinates, because the coordinate shown is the same as the posted coordinates.

regards
Picht

The initial coordinates for the waypoint dialog is your current location, not the coordinates of the geocache.

Sorry, thats not what happens on my device.
The coordinates on the dialog are the coordinates of the cache.
And the distance is still way off as I'm less than 50 km from the cache in question.
