It is possible to maximize or minimize elevation in the Route planning.

It would be great to be able adjust the route gradient to. Elevation is not always a showstopper, but crazy gradients can be.

I am a gravel addict and I like to ride my bike and not carry it.

When planning a route in new terrain it would be great to be able to remove MTB style trails by limiting the gradients to a specific value. like +/-5%, +/-10% or similar. A slider selection would better than fixed values.

Visualising the gradient on the map by changing the color of the route would be a nice touch too.


Best regards
