This command can be used to find the fastest way by car between two arbitrary points by downloading and importing the vector data on Google Maps.

3. Click 'Get and import KML file'.

OCAD sends a request to Google Maps API and downloads the generated KML file. This file is temporary saved in the OCAD temporary folder (e.g. C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\OCAD\OCAD11\Tmp\).
OCAD imports the kml file and adds the colors and symbols from the template file. Colors needed for Routing are at the top of the color table.

The required symbols for routing appear at the bottom of the symbol box.
