get delta x and delta z values of A1 and A2 positions. divide them then use arctangent function to calculate the angle.
it should be something like this:

delta_x = A1.x - A2.x;
delta_y = A1.y - A2.y;

if(delta_x != delta_y)
if((delta_x > 0 )
my.pan = atan(delta_y/delta_x) - 90;
my.pan = atan(delta_y/delta_x) + 90;
as you see, this only works with Z axis. bur you can make for x and y like that if necesserry. you may have a look math forum for more advenced solutions..
