If you’re running iOS 14.5 or later on your iPhone, then you can use Apple Maps on your iPhone and Apple CarPlay to quickly share your ETA with others.

Apple Maps’ new ETA sharing feature makes your life easy, as you can easily share the time you would reach your desired destination.

The ETA sharing feature is great for letting friends and family know when you will be reaching their home or how long it would take you to pick them up.

Sharing Estimated Time Of Arrival or in short ETA will not only let your friends know how long it would take you to reach them, or a certain location but it will also allow them to track your location in real time.
