The problem is updating the %loc data - I've used what you've done but its not working and I have a few questions...
Essentially, in what order does Tasker manage nested profiles? Your "Parked Car" send to run "Wait..." before it runs "Get..." "Wait..." then seems to set carloc to %loc BEFORE running "Get...", and then closes "Get..." which I didn't think had been started yet...
Please help! :-(
And thank you, I'm already much closer thanks to you!
I had to go back and see what I wrote, which was about 6 weeks ago. Since that time, Tasker has the added ability to force a current GPS fix, so I would probably re-write the whole thing. I think it's best to start from scratch at this point. What iis it you're trying to do?
