And this is the end of my oneman > thread. :) For what it's worth, the geo*wgs_84() functions are *much* more computationally intensive than the spherical functions. For *many* purposes, the less accurate (but still pretty close) and more efficient functions work just fine. We do need the wgs_84() functions for precise scenery calculations and precise navigation calculations. Regards, Curt.
