COGO, Traverse Window and distance

I'm trying to enter a survey using the COGO tools in ArcMap. This is not my field of expertise, so I've been poking around and I figured out most of it.


I created a new feature.

Added COGO fields.

Edit feature.

COGO Traverse Window.

Entered starting point.

Entered Direction (after finally figuring out the units option...)

Entered Distance

Clicked 'ADD'

And the line from my point of origin extends an unbelievable long way.


I entered 407 feet, and the line on map extends across North America. I've tried a units factor (meters to feet) and the same thing happens. I'm not sure what error I've made. I've checked online for help, but I haven't seen this exact problem. Any ideas?
