Please note that Google has removed the KML export functionality in 2014 from its API. Since then only the names of the positions are transferred from Google Maps to RouteConverter but not their coordinates. You can add the coordinates by using the geocoding functionality behind Complete->Coordinates and are strongly advised to double check its results.
