Domenic - solved just the scenario you mentioned with Gmap + Location
although you need to patch location - the issue in question is this one:

Although if you have all the issues sorted except a view with multiple
markers/ nodes you might just try an alternative approach just for that part
and leave the rest as is. Mapstraction or openlayers will do it -
mapstraction is more lightweight and probably enough.
