Export GPX with Elevation Data

Fairly straight forward request, but exporting tracks currently lacks elevation data, and it would be incredibly helpful if it were to include it. Is there an option to do this, or is it anywhere on the roadmap?

    If you record a mobile track using the CalTopo mobile app, you can export a GPX of your track with the elevation data. For a number of reasons, CalTopo does not embed GPS elevation into GPX files that are exported unless you have actually travelled that track (I.e. recorded it with the mobile app). We may consider doing so in the future.

    With a pro, desktop or team account, you can export the profile as a PNG or PDF image with the elevation data in it, or CSV raw data file.
