Can you see total vert traveled for current trip?

I'm wondering if it's possible to track total vert traveled during a CalTopo route recording? The only way I know how to do this is by ending the track, choosing the track, and then hitting "Profile". I thought that the arrow indicator that shows up when you're recording a track was vert distance traveled (see attached image), but it is wildly incorrect - the track I was recording was only 1850 vert but showed almost 11500 at the top, and even showed 17500 when I was skiing down. What is that indicator?

    Hi Jeff,

    This is a bug that is on our list to fix. It should be telling you an estimate of the total elevation gained, but what it's doing now has some issues, as you have noticed.
