The installation is now UI based. It calls for you to pick an origin and a destination. Not sure why, but OK I chose one of each. Now what? The docs show an input select and a template but is this suppose to be put in your configuration.yaml file, lovelace card or somewhere else?
I see a lot of examples prior to the UI install but nothing clear to me on how the new implementation is done.
That’s pretty self explanatory, no? You need an origin and a destination for any directions anywhere…
That’s the yaml way. In the UI you just put an origin and a destination.
I’m not sure what you’re hiccup is. The directions in the UI say: Add latitude, longitude as comma separated values, entity_id, or address for origin and destination. The only potential missleading thing would be “what type of entity” and the answer is: Any entity where you can get the latitude and longitude out of: person (w/ lat/lon device tracker attached), device_tracker (w/ lat lon), sensor w/ lat, lon as the state or lat/lon attributes, zone, any other entity_id that has lat/lon as attributes.
Maybe self explanatory to you and people that have been using it for a while, but not to me. I just installed the integration. It works and gives me travel time from the origin to destination. But I see nothing in the docs on how to use.
It is not clear to me how to track entity to destination. I have setup per the example in the doc. It is unclear to me what I put in a Lovelace card to use it.
Of course I have used Google maps for directions, just not as part of home assistant. The directions show how to create multiple destinations, but they do not show how to use the multiple destinations. Maybe you believe this is obvious? I believe the documentation is missing information. I.e. create xyz card, use a tracker, etc.
It would make sense if the origin was my device tracker. I guess I need to reconfigure it to use it? This was not clear (to me) in the docs. I used an origin address and a destination rather than an entity.
This is what I tried: Setup a new Waze travel after I created the input select. I used the gps tracker for input and the input select as destintaion.
I then created a card that shows the new sensor and the input select. When I change the input select it shows the correct name but it does not seem to change the destination in the sensor I created.
