Is there a way to access the ion-title value in your component?

Is there a way to get the value of the ion-title that was set in your template in your component?

Or better yet, is there a way to get the ion-title value when listening to the route changes within the app?

I may be wrong, but i dont think so.
If your purpose is keeping track of the view you are in, i suggest to use a variable inside a service, for example whereAmI: string, and once you enter a view you can set it like this:

ionViewWillEnter {
this.yourService.whereAmI = ‘the-view-u-r-in’;
}
