In order to download yer Google Maps KML route, 1st ya gotta "Save to My Maps". But dammit, sometimes I didn't even see that prompt down at the bottom of the page. I tried this, that, & the other...no go. Afta WAY too long I *finally* smurfed up the answer. Jest don't use the "Avoid tolls" option. That's it, bada-bing!
