 I suspect the KML for My Maps doesn't support the ExtendedData block
that is in your original KML....


says "untyped <Data> only, no <SimpleData> or <Schema>, and entity
replacements of the form $[dataName] are unsupported. "

Your KML uses ExtendedData with SimpleData from a Schema. I'm not sure
how you'd replace this with simple untyped <Data>, or how this would
look on My Maps....
