Route Slope Angle and aspect

    Ditto to Brian's post!  In particular, the inability to display incline (slope angle) along a route or track is a real shortcoming in Gaia which I'm hoping can be addressed and  prioritized for a future update.  This could be done several ways such as in Brian's Caltopo example, but one great way would be to provide a switch to plot either vertical elevation or incline versus distance.  Better yet, both elevation and incline could be on the same plot using two y-axis.  I think the aforementioned methods would be a little better than showing a color bar.  I do like the slope angle maps but they don't provide the needed functionality for route planning.  I hoping I'm not missing something and this incline functionality is already there (I sometimes can't even find my car keys).

    Thanks to the Gaia app developers!
