Great! Thanks for the tip on KML files.

A while back I added the ability to import KML files containing dive sites. Depending on your source, you may be able to export one of those then drag/drop to import.
The KML import doesn't seem to work properly. I can drag/drop the file, but it does not get the country, location name, or longitude from the file. This map https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid= ... sp=sharing is an example. If I go to the map, select the download KML option, and make sure it exports as KML instead of KMZ, I have the problems above. This is true for any Google Maps generated file.

They don't contain the country name, only the site.

The coordinates in that file don't play nicely with the XML parser, they end up getting mangled. I will fix this for the next update.
