    Distance & Bearing of Pushpins?

    Is there a simple way of determining the distance between two pushpins, and the bearing of the second pin to the first?

    eg. Pin2 is 3.2m SSE of Pin1

    Thanks

    Nick

    The way I'd attack it is first get the lat/lon of each location and then take a look at http://williams.best.vwh.net/avform.htm to find the right formula and apply.
