For demo examples we will use links from Google Maps API Google Maps JavaScript API v3

More than one KML Layer in Map

In some cases you needs to use more than one KML layer in map.

In this situation you should use paths "feature", ie if you go to Paths tab, and when try to create new paths (or check exists), you can notice, that Path field is not required.

Therefore you can enter field KML Layer as you want, and it caused to showing KML Layer in map (if you publish this path on your map).

Addition field KML Layer Show Type is needed to set what you expect to show KML layer on map - if map zoom will be changed show all layer objects, or stay as is set on map details

And create any numbers of paths with KML-layers on your map.
