Pretty much useless

I'd rather be able to search an area for an elevation. I want to see where in the US is the elevation between a certain height... kinda like a coded map I input say between 3000ft and 6000ft and it shades in the areas that match.

It would be great if it shows also a horizontal distance if I mark two points. It would be very helfpul for calculating a grade.

Worked fine. Gave me a reasonable estimate of my locations height above sea level. If u need an accurate reading, pay for an OS map!

Can be very useful for a freebie, but to be used with care; i live on a steep hill and all houses are registered as the same level.
