What is difference between Time to Destination and ETA

Post by DIRK » Sat Oct 20, 2018 7:30 pm

With the October 3 update HH added the datafield Time to Destination.
For the ATG update of October 19 they added datafield Estimated Time of Arrival.
What is the difference between these two fields?

Time to destination is the amount of time left, e.g. 1 hr 5 mins. ETA is Estimated Time of Arrival, i.e. the absolute time estimated for arrival, e.g. 12:17pm.

For non-native English speakers, the distinction between the "to" and "of" in those two expressions is probably not at all obvious, but is very important.
