When I load a KML in Google maps, it doesn't show all polygons, instead there are Google "next-previous" pages, each containing parts of the KML. How can I view all the information in one page? Thanks, Tamir

There are limits everywhere.

I guess it's just that. When you have more features, they are just simply split into different pages.

There is a limit on the number of KML Layers that can be displayed on a single Google Map. If you exceed this limit, none of your layers will display. The limit is based on the total length of all URLs passed to the KMLLayer class, and consequently will vary by application; on average, you should be able to load between 10 and 20 layers without hitting the limit.
