Feedback from the map Czar, Doug.
"Below is the contents of the batch file with the wget. the italicized all caps words are things I took out to anonymize the information.
cd /users/NAME/documents/FOLDER /Windows/GnuWin32/bin/wget http://www.google.com/maps/d/u/1/kml?mid=FI +LE ID --no-check-certificate
This saves it to the folder in the batch file with the name kml@mid=FILE ID.NUMBER Then all you have to do is rename it NAME.kmz and it works perfectly. there might be a better way with the file names but this works fine for our purpose. it only has to be renamed if I need to restore the map. so far it is churning away as planned. I appreciate the help. you probably have more time in finding this solution than I do in setting up the map."
Doug is running the .bat file hourly using Windows Scheduler. Thanks again to all that contributed.

There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...
