GeoDistance gives other value than SpheroidalDistance

Hello,

after switching to Mathematica 7, I tried to eliminate calls to
SpheroidalDistance by calls to GeoDistance.
However, the result of GeoDistance seems to differ by a factor 1000:

args = {{46.8475, 15.4453}, {47.141163, 14.661255}};
GeoDistance @@ args
SpheroidalDistance @@ args

Any comment appreciated,
kind regards,
Karsten.
