I am unable to display a kmz/kml file on Google Earth on Android. I got the file from here:

I tried using KMZ to Earth Explorer. I've put the files on Google Drive and imported them in Google Earth. Either way, I just get a "blank" earth. I can see it correctly on Google Earth Pro on my PC.

What do I need to do?

  • I'm confused - is it Earth Explorer or Google Earth that you're having trouble opening the file?

  • I see your confusion ... and mine. I mean Google Earth. I misread the functionally of the KMZ to Earth Explorer. Feb 17, 2017 at 17:19
  • Are you having trouble opened the KMZ in Google Earth for Android? So it works fine when you try it on PC?

Try upgrading your Google Earth on Android to the new version (9.x) of Google Earth, which came out in April. It has better KML support. Worked for me.
