How can I get

the correct GeoDistance (= arc length of the geodetic)
the correct GeoDirection (= azimuth)
thr correct GeoDestinantion (= position from azimuth an arc length)

for positions with different longitudes and special elliposoid-parameters?
For example:

from Lat/Lon= 51=B0, 0=B0 to Lat/Lon = 51 =B0, 1=B0

if  SemimajorAxis  ->1 should be and
SemiminorAxis -> 0.6?
