The Elevation Profile shows a graph of the track's elevation.

Track Marker

The yellow triangle near the top of the hill is the Track Marker. Click on the elevation profile to move the marker. As you move the marker, its location will be updated on any maps you currently have open, allowing you to accurately determine the locations of peaks and valleys on the map.
