Exploring the landscape: simplest way of getting an elevation profile

Hi! I’ve being playing with JOSM for a while and installed Elevation and Elevation Profile plugins. Both offer a lot of possibilities.

But I would like to be able to explore the area in the current zoom by quickly visualizing the elevation profile of any straight line joining two selected points on the map. I don’t want to create a new GPX track, or adding new features to the map. I just want a quick graphical representation of the profile in a separated window.

Furthermore, I understand that JOSM has no route-planning features as it is not its purpose, but I would find a simple “elevation profile visualization” tool will be very useful to helping understand the area.

Is there anything available? Thanks!
