Please add number to each marker spot (or checkbox to toggle on/off) so we can correlate with the height data list

Hi, elevation does not work anymore.
By Bill on 27th February 2024
Any chance of adding nautical miles (nm) as an option for distance output please?

Gerald, the interface is currently providing the best resolution for each particular area.
By Daft Logic on 12th May 2023
Is it possible to allow a closer zoom factor/resolution? The current zoom factor/resolution is a bit too vague, given the height accuracy is to 0.01m
By Gerald Lock on 11th May 2023
I dont think this is very accurate, being playing around in my local area in North Wales and have found multiple errors on the supposed "heights"
