cannot import Google KMZ map overlay

Hello,
I have some Google KMZ Map overlays, which I want to import to Pathaway.
I choose the method to send the file by email.
I can open the mail dialog to import to Pathaway but then Pathaway opens and there is no map to import.
I read in several threads that you should open the ..Data->Maps dialog but in my menu I canot find this menu item.
Under the data item only Points, Routes, Tracks, Point Database, Import and Export show up as selectable items
I am using the latest version of Pathaway on a Iphone6.
Would be very happy for some tips since I want to use those maps during my next sailing trip.

Thanks in Advance

Harald

PathAway only supports the "Data" portions of kmz files. That is it will import any Points, Routes, or Tracks found in the kmz file. It will not import any embedded maps. For maps you need to either select the downloadable map you want from WebMaps, or import a custom PathAway map or unencrypted BSB/KAP chart.
