You can install a android emulator like bluestacks on your PC,  install locus, provide a mock location and done. Tested last week.

For global info: http://www.locusmap.eu/everything-you-always-wanted-to-know-about-elevation-in-locus-but-were-afraid-to-ask/

I do not have a pressure sensor so when I found that altitude data of the recorded track with just gps are crazy I tried to solve.

First you need a good accuracy of recorded track points:
settings -> track rec -> choose your profile settings --> requested accuracy set a strict value (for me 30mt)

Second you can have better SRTM values using HGT files with 1" arc insted of 3"
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/hgt-elevation-data-display-if-both-1%E2%80%9D-and-3%E2%80%9D-resolution-hgt-files-are-present-in-the-srtm-directory
http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/Coverage%20map%20viewfinderpanoramas_org1.htm
http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/dem3.html

and if you want a costant application of srtm data and bypass the "fill data.." after track recorded use this:
in settings -> gps and position -> altitude manager -> settings -> srtm data -> replace gps values

Does this stuff you are telling me apply to me since I have a baro sensor or just to someone who is using a device WITHOUT a baro sensor? I hate to just start changing values i do not understand if it is going to make it worse for my particular phone. With a baro sensor do I still want to bypass the fill data and replace gps track values or is this just what you did because of the device you were using with no baro sensor?

You started this topic with a question about elevation gain, not about pressure sensor settings, after some posts we now know that your device has the pressure sensor.
Before this we also talk about SRTM.
If someone else in future will read this topic will find something usefull about elevation gain becouse the post title is ELEVATION GAIN.

If you wonder if "this stuff" is about pressure sensor, read carefully what I wrote "I do not have a pressure sensor", nothing in my post is about pressure sensor.

And if you "hate to just start changing values i do not understand ..." you can start study how things work, you didn't know to use side panel, you didn't know that "Elevation gain = elevation (uphill)" now you know becouse someone used his time to answer you even if this things are explained in the documentation and in other posts.

Now I can answer your questions:
1) No
2) This is just what I do because my device has no pressure sensor.

P.S.
Strava does not have the truth, no software and no device has the truth.
Put the same track gpx file into 3 different account with different algorithms you'll obtain 3 different altitude gain.
I use Locus on two phones (no baro) and a garmin forerunner and you'll see that the 3 tracks have differences not only about the altitude gain.
I agree with michaelbechtold "Elevation collected from GPS in mobile devices is like rolling the dice around the true curve."
So you need to study wich way is better for you/your device/your habits/place of use.

@gynta and Kompass map (799 LoCoins)
- more info please
- screenshot
- the name of map
- why are not Kompass maps "detailed"? Some real experiences?
- the text "Detailed" is adopted form official Kompass product description
I used komass maps but I prefer Tabacco on paper are 1:25.000 no experience on digital version

As other wrote I like the actual Quick measurement, no timer just disappear with the next touch of the screen.

A little bug:
With calibrated image disabled if I search for some caches and in the pop up menu I select show them on map both caches and disabled image appear on the map.

Hello
In map items I found a double voice in menu one in English and one in Italian.
The Italian one is enabled the English disabled but the line is visible on the map.

Quote"Settings" button on track record widget changed to icon of current profile
if profile is changed via widget or direct in settings the widget icon isn´t refreched.
It´s refreched on next track record start :-[
The same for me, the refresh of the icon needs a fresh start of locus (if already in memory the widget doesn't refresh) or track rec.

V 3.18.9.6
if i tap near the left side of the screen while 2 finger measure, measurement freeze. Reset can be done with a new two finger touch inside the screen
https://www.dropbox.com/s/z603p9tevsxkdl2/2finger.mp4?dl=0
Confirmed
I think that when you touch the left side of the screen the activation of side panel casue the issue.

settings/maps/maps objects/Quick measurement
and additional setting in config.cfg see code in #290
Thank you,
I have the altitude value back.
I don't know why the "line below info" is disabled in the last beta, and I do not understand why the two fingers measurement is disabled by default.
But the important is to have both back

Hello,
In New beta 3.18.9.5 the two fingers measurement doesn't show altitude value.

long click measurement two fingers, nice feature :)
map_items_selection_line_value_below=0
if this value is set to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 always elevation is displayed
i noticed that direction - + of elevation value depend on which finger of both hit first on display
I agree, great and simple to use feature.
