Very laggy. Markers take a long time to appear and the delete function for markers doesn't work. Used to be a really good tool!

Please just tell people it's broken now rather than messing about pretending it works a bit.

Unfortunately very buggy now and inaccurate. Takes forever to add a marker, if it adds any at all.

Elevations are not correct. Used to be great! Now if I do more than one, they all show the same elevation. The area I am looking at is very hilly, so should be considerable variation every time.
By Carol on 19th August 2018

Used to be fairly accurate now its off by 15 feet. Used to have different heights depending on what part of a property I clicked on. Now they are all the same.

Sorry but there is no part of New Orleans that is 23 feet above sea level unless your talking about the top of my house

Works just fine. Tested it on a European capital ranging from 100 to 500m elevation.

Used to be great, now hopeless as all positions tried just show the same elevation.. why were these changes made?
