    Testing this tutorial & I am stuck at step 5. I'm expecting to assign a variable named %routeinfo to "1 hr 53 min - 93 mi - 1:27 PM ETA" (or whatever my travel details would be),
    Instead I get a list to select from such as:
    Select fields that should create variables
    14 min, Activate to open step list
    Array: Waterview Dr
    toward Hilltop Rd
    Array: Hilltop Rd
    Tap to speak button
    North up view . . .

    My goal is to somehow capture the ETA to a variable, then send that variable in an SMS.
    Please tell me where I am in error for this excercise, I have been scratching my head over it for 6 hours.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Does the ETA appear on the screen when you do the screen capture?

    Yes it does, it looks similar (the word ETA does not appear) to your tutorial, here is what I see:

    When I slide the top bar down for the AutoInput "Accept" this is what I see after I Accept:
    Screenshot_AutoInput.png
    I don't want to quit, so I have selected the first option on the above list "28 min, Activate to open step list"
    Then, I assign that to a %routeinfo variable. Add a task to flash the %routeinfo variable. Then, another task to "Say" t0he %routeinfo variable. Activate the profile by "OK Google, send route to me". AutoVoice works (VERY cool). The task continues & flashes the variable name, not the results. The "SAY task says "percent sign routeinfo". So I am stuck or doing something very stupid. My Google Maps version is 9.12.1 - maybe I can go back a earlier version (or two, or three) & see if the program acts differently.
    Thanks for your interest in this problem & for creating the coolest apps. Should I take future conversations to the forum?

    I am having the same issue - the variable does not get filled. I tried it with Waze as well and still the variable is blank. Thoughts?

    @NH80 is the Google maps app showing in the foreground when you run the task?

    Hi there, I liked your idea an so I tried was not satisfied and found another way, I used autonotification.

    When you start a trip maps make a notification that I used to trigger a notification with the same text in it.
    But with a share button.
    Works really fine.
