    I'm pleased to report that these bugs have been fixed, so it should all be OK now - thanks again for flagging these up.

    Thanks for flagging these up - we didn't spot these during testing.  We'll get them fixed as soon as possible.

    I also just noticed that now the plot of the elevation profile gradient no longer shows negative values (it starts at 0).

    I think there's a bug on the minimum elevation slider.  When I try to set the min elevation to 449 feet, it only sets it to about 130 in the graph.  I suspect it's a units thing (449 feet = 137 m).

    I'm pleased to say that we've been able to implement these suggestions straight away :-)  We've also added a new search box at the top of the Route Profile page so you can easily switch to other routes.  Thanks again for putting these ideas forward.

    Great suggestions - thanks.  I don't think they should be too difficult, so we'll see what we can do.

    I have two suggestions for the route profile tool.  First, it would be helpful if the map and the elevation profile were linked, so if you hover the mouse over the route in the map, you'd see the tool-tip move around at the right location in the elevation profile. Alternatively if you hover the pointer in the elevation profile, a dot would move around in the map corresponding to the same point along the route.  


    Second, it would be helpful to limit the extents of the elevation axis, so instead of the lower bound being 0 ft, the user could set it to be anywhere between 0 and the minimum elevation in the route.


    Thanks for the site!

    Thanks Sandu - that's fantastic feedback, much appreciated.

    Whitney - I see you've posted you questions in our 'Feature Requests' Forum as well, so I'll answer them there.

    2 questions in general because I don't know where to submit suggestions/questions:

    1) your maps don't seem to include a direction arrow indicating north. why?

    2) your distance measures are awesome, but there are no bearings for orienteering! If we're hiking, and need a compass with the map we design, bearings would be so helpful, and it seems like it ought to be easy for you to add that feature
