I like the new way of placing route points. At first I thought it was a bug, but it makes sense to be able to see the point, not hidden underneath the finger.

May I submit a feature request? When examining the details page for a route or a point, it'd be useful to see the slope/gradient (for a point, average slope between the contour lines, for a route, average slope between two points). As it is now, I have to switch over to Android's calculator to figure this out. Degrees and/or percentage would be great!
