my elevation displays your current
elevation above sea level, rate of ascent, and grade of
your traveled terrain.

What is my elevation?
displays a computer's or mobile device's
elevation above sea level. If the device has GPS, and
its GPS unit is reporting elevation,
my elevation reports
that elevation directly. When there is no GPS elevation provided,
my elevation estimates the
elevation based on the reported map location.
Grade estimates the average grade of
recently traveled terrain. Grade is simply the ratio of
vertical change divided by horizontal change.
estimates the ascending or descending rate, in feet per hour,
averaged over recent terrain. As the GPS-reported
altitude moves around, this ascent rate number changes often.
GPS units receive signals from several satellites as they
pass overhead. Elevation accuracy depends on how many
satellites are in view of the device, and where they are in the sky.
Because of this constantly changing array of visible
satellites, elevation accuracy changes constantly. The GPS
accuracy is displayed directly beneath the elevation number.
