    Re: An azimuth formula that works everywhere? Even on poles?

    Dear Tony,

    The short answer is that the function you defined is not continuous, and thus, unlike other navigational formulas, you cannot express it using only continuous functions like sines, cosines, and basic arithmetic.

    The long answer is a bit more nuanced but the gist is the same.
