Confusion while reading Iron Coffins

I just started reading Iron Coffins (by Herbert Werner), and found something a little odd. In his book (end of Chapter 3), he briefly talks about arriving over the Bismarck's gravesite on May 29th, 1941.
What doesn't make sense to me, though is that when I checked the location of U 557 on this site for May 29th ( [www.uboat.net] ), and even the 30th, they were over 900 nautical miles away from where the Bismarck actually sank.

Am I missing something?
