It is unfortunate that the article you linked to does not have a date on it. But, you'll notice that it refers to ARCHICAD 15... 9 versions ago, when the Google Earth connection did indeed work. I don't know about the current add-on...

Hey! what is going on here? Google Earth has free data and Archicad use to grab it easy and now it cannot!! Why are we going backwards? I have a site that is on top of a mountain and I need topo and context to show in my design. There use to be a command in the File menu to grab Google Earth data, Easy-peasy. Then it was a plug-in. Then nothing. What has happened?
Is there a work around? I think Sketchup will work and then import from there?

I feel like I‘ve spent a multitude of hours reading Graphisoft articles only to find they are out of date or inaccurate.
I have been looking for an easy way to import survey data, either GIS, KML or CSV but none of these seem to work with Archicad 25. The only way that I can do this is to generate the topography from a DWG file which is extremely time consuming.
It is frustrating that Archicad is stagnating/regressing in this regard..
