We are needing a map to display the service area for a pet sitting service. The service area consists of a radius from a specific address. Can “My Maps” allow us to enter an address and have a custom region created throughout a 5 mile radius from their main office address? Such that a potential client can enter their address and be told whether they’re within the service area or not?

You can set the distance limitation while searching. For more information:

We've exported a KML file from Google Earth that contains the radius circles we need and imported it into My Maps. Our 2 location records were created but the only fields populated were "Name" and "Alias". I'm attaching a screenshot of our google earth project from which we exported the KML.

I am also interested in this. Did you get it worked out? Thanks

Our final solution was to use our KML file containing shapes as a KML Layer defined in the menu item. We found that the KML file can only contain marker points to be imported as individual locations. It cannot contain shapes.

yes you can put the kml url directly in map.

What if we are not using Google? We plan to use Mapbox? Any options for this?
