Thank you Freemaptools, it works. Notes: On Mozilla Firefox on Android Nougat the "estimate elevation" button is hidden when the page is initialy loaded. I have to switch option in the option box multiple times to make the "estimate elevation" button visible. Once the "estimate elevation" button is visible I select lat-long option and then press that button, and then the elevation data is shown right bellow the map. I don't know if that was the page intended design or not but since I read several user comments of the page not working so I put this notes for other users who perhaps experiencing similar problem.

Duncan, are you running any ad blocking or popup blocking extensions?

I've used this for years, its great but recently its showing 0 feet all over the map. Seems to be a bug that wasnt there before.
By Duncan on 11th December 2020

very accurate love to use it

Unfortunately, I found this to be COMPLETELY INACCURATE. I live a few blocks away from a creek that flooded back in the 90's, to the point of almost submerging cars. We're on a higher elevation than that area, so the water didn't touch us. But when I checked my location against the location of the creek (where the flood initiated), this said that the creek was nearly 10ft HIGHER than my home. Blatantly false data! I appreciate the ability to check my elevation, but there's no point if the info is wrong.
