The Track Profile can display a graph of Altitude or Speed against the Distance or Time travelled.
To show the Altitude it must be stored with each track point. Tracks downloaded from the Garmin eTrex, eTrex Summit, eMap do have the altitude. Tracks downloaded from most other GPS receivers do not have the altitude. Tracks collected in moving map mode (real time tracking) will normally have the altitude.
To show the speed the date and time when each track point was collected must be stored with each track point. Garmins store the date/time for each track point, most other GPS receivers do not. The Garmins do not store the date/time for saved tracks (tracks saved within the GPS). Tracks collected in moving map mode (real time tracking) will normally have the date/time for each point. Tracks created manually in OziExplorer or downloaded from GPS receivers which do not store the date/time will be assigned a date/time to the point but it is not useful for this purpose.
