In testing code for Deathpod3000, I found it very valuable to have a quick and easy way to calculate correct distance and bearing to a latitude longitude waypoint to compare to results I was getting from my Atmega32 C code.  In this article, I will explain a little about the formulas, show them working in Excel and at the end of the article you can download a spreadsheet and play with them yourself.
