I was asking if you can export the location data from AQ

I got the My Maps on Google to accept data exported from AQ. First I did an advanced search of my boxes--apparently only 100 can be done per layer. Then I mapped the results to KMI. After it did its thing I checked my download file and an earth file had appeared with the data. I could edit that file by clicking on the pin I wanted and deleting ones such as mysteries and bonus boxes. I went to My Maps and chose import data and then dragged the earth icon onto the add a layer. It worked.

Kelsung has one of these

You can only have so many pins per map, so I have two for every year since 2009 (one each for previous years) with different colors per year . When Google Maps changed a couple years ago, I don't know how to get it to open multiple maps at once. It looks like you're still able to do that, so can you tell me how?

Here's an old screen cap from a couple years ago (2013?) that I just found (inspiring my late reply to this thread):
