Something wrong. Elevations are irrelevant. -999? what is this?

-999 meters here too

This map Works well. It is very useful. if the elevation is called out as -999.0 m or -3277.6 feet or no result, one has to close the map, wait and restart it again. Thanks.

Yes, a brilliant friendly useful site when it's not showing -999 metres!!! I hope you'll be able to fix it somehow.
By Sull on 29th February 2024
