Something must be wrong with my Elavation Correction

Something must be wrong with my Elavation Correction

I have installed this great plugin, but think something must be wrong.

I have completed this run:

Elavation +44,9/-42,2

When applying elvation correction:

Elavation +0,0/-1,9

From your images it is clear that the elevation correction works just fine. The total ascent/descent values reported by SportTracks will depend on your elevation smoothing and climb zone settings, see the Elevation and climb data FAQ for more information. The default ST zones treat grades below 2%, i.e., below 20 meters per km, as flat parts which are excluded from the total ascent/descent numbers. The reason that you get different results without elevation correction is probably that measurement errors cause the computed grades to exceed 2% for some parts of the activity. You can check what parts of the activity ST considers to be ascending or descending by marking the corresponding row in the table above the graph.
