Yes, ther eis a tab at the bottom of the screen entitled "Elevations" .
It opens a graphiclal view of your trip from start at the left hand side to finish at the right.
The vertical axis is the elevation. if you then turn on gradients you will see a colours representing the grade.

... and if you place your cursor on the elevation in the bottom window a small circle will appear on the route in the map showing the location of that elevation.

Click the ELEVATION tab at the bottom of the map. Once open, you can also Show Gradient.

My Garmin RV 785 can display elevation over on the right column, for the route segment you're currently on. We use it to see when we're approaching a big hill.

Wow! I had the information I was looking for all along! I use Trip Wizard regularly and never noticed that little elevation tab at the bottom. And here I was trying to reinvent the wheel. Just what I was looking for to assist with my trip planning! Many thanks.

And being able to run my cursor over a particular stretch of road and see the elevation change is awesome.

Another satisfied forum customer!

You can use Google maps on your phone for a quick overview of route elevation. Enter your route, then select bicycle as vehicle type. Elevation info will be shown at bottom, then you can expand view to see profile.

Wow again! I love learning new things about tools I've used for many years. How did you ever figure out that under bicycle mode you got elevation? Fantastic - as google maps is my usual GPS.

Now if Google Maps would only add an RV choice...........
