Most of the desktop features seemed to be present when I used the app outdoors. I even tracked myself with cell phone GPS, which saved to my account. However, I was unable to create a track profile of anything, even when I had service. For now, that's my only gripe.

    You're looking for the elevation profile?
    While a map is loaded you can press the middle toolbar button to bring up the list of objects (lines, GPS tracks, markers) on the map. Tap the label of one of these objects to bring up a list of actions for that item, including "Profile."

    No, I know where the feature is supposed to be located, I'm saying that it isn't working.
    When I click on profile, it says "calculating profile, stand by" and then goes right back to the map without showing the profile.

    It's possible that it can't calculate profile because it's an area in Mexico. If I try the profile on the website it works, and if I try the profile on American tracks on the beta, it works too.

    That's probably it. The website can use Google's elevation data when CalTopo doesn't have in-house elevation data (basically anything outside of US / Canada), right now the mobile app can't.
