For some reason started showing elevation as "-999.0 m or -3277.6 feet" pretty much everywhere... Was very useful tool before. Would appreciate if you guys fix it. Thank you so much for maintaining it, it's an awesome tool!

When I used this 2 years ago, I could zoom in 2 clicks and the place name would show up. Doesn't work now.

How do I find the highest point between two points? I'm trying to do a long distance laser experiment but I'm limited to certain areas due to airport proximities

This is tedious and useless, just like all the elevation finders on the web are.

elevation everywhere, over 1500m
On 28th March 2023

I loved it the first time and after that it never worked again ... just no box appears to ask for an 'estimated elevation' for lat/long. Only if I choose free text and then back again to lat/long, but it never works when I click on it. Shame.
