Not sure I understand that - you would be running up a 1 in 5 hill on your Goole map but the treadmill would still be at the same gradient as it always was 0% or 1% which are the normal 2 choices
Why run a virtual route? If you want to bang out a session on a treadie, do it on a treadie and take advantage of the features a treadie can offer - specific pace for specific periods, no wind resistance etc. If you want to run a "route" - go outside and run properly in the countryside with real fresh air.
I have never run more than a 5K on treadmills previously but in the last year have got quite into them. Ideal if you have injuries and need to be careful. Handy in winter when going out at night is not much fun. Good if you are on-call and cannot be too far away from a computer. I also like the mental strength you need to use one.
Be careful when you reach a bend!
