If you change the drop down list to Autosuggest, that is what you can do.

Used GPS setting and worked fine. You see an icon of your location on the map.

Worked to start with, now (2 days later)just defaults to -9999 metres for anywhere and everywhere. Refreshing doesn't help. Rebooting doesn't help. Glad I didn't pay for it, because it isn't worth anything :-)

this app is baloney, clicked on seawater - says 0m then i moved it a little bit but still at sea waster - it suddenly tells 6 meters. WTF
On 8th August 2019

It went crazy and it says 292.3 feet. I'm in the mountains, so it should be higher.
On 7th August 2019

Not working. -9999.0m in 3 different browsers. Used to work fine. Please fix!

Can't be trusted, shows beginning of a short bridge 164 m, center 153 m, other end 160 m. I know for sure the bridge arches up, not down.

This app was so quick and helpful. I plan on taking more road trips and it will be interesting keeping track, especially throughout the mountains

I just checked elevation between Phoenix and Dallas along the highways and even the peaks for reference. I dropped a couple hundred pins. It worked perfectly. Using Microsoft Edge on Win 10 Pro v1903 (latest)
