Would be better if you learned theory of graphs and made a programm that actually calculates mileage

Nah, really, get yourself a pedometer and walk off the distance.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

@KenNichols
Well done
First thing to would be to check if the website is replying in Miles or KM.
Add some fields for Country.

As identified in this topic...http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/93425-ie-help/page__gopid__1074617#entry1074617

Because Google appears to have updated the way they code their html, simply change "dditd" to "altroute_0" in the above code. Can get altroute_1 or altroute_2 as well if those are presented.
