    I had the same question on this difference between edit mode and saved route. Ideally these should be the same.

    Yes, the reported values should be the same and we are currently tracking this to find the root of the issue.

    I take it there is still no solution?  I don't know about elevation loss and gain, but the total mileage is way off when viewed as a folder.  Here's a link to my folder, as you can see the total distance of the routes in the folder is far greater than the total listed in the folder Stats.

    Hoping to see a solution, thanks!

    Maybe the discrepancy has common roots with the problem that route and track show very different climb estimates. If this is the case, maybe the two links can help understanding what's going on:

    Planned route: about 1400 m climb <https://www.gaiagps.com/public/KzFGZMnHceIuXVM5HCciOdc5>

    Track recording : about 900 m climb <https://www.gaiagps.com/public/42IYhOtHrTKSMifQE8E2Nrcu>

    The track followed the route quite tightly. What comes to my mind is that the route was drawn in Hiking mode, maybe the climb estimate is done along the straight lines joining the drawn points rather than along the trails.
