Dom, if you contact me off list I'll send you some code to do 3 using
gmap+location in a view preprocess function

Re 4)location has a distance filter, not sure if it works by postcode

In the meantime, I would suggest a careful look at the Openlayers
(http://drupal.org/project/openlayers) module if I were you. It is powerful
and once you get into it gives you a lot of flexibility.


OpenLayers does indeed look cool. It looks like a bit of overkilll
perhaps... what I'm trying to do seems straightforward enough:


1) nodes of type "event" have an "address" field. Fill in the address.

2) Single node pages have a map with a pin on it

3) views of multiple events have a single map with many pins <- (this is
where gmap + geo is croaking)

4) ability to filter that view by distance -- xx miles from ZIP code. 

5) all US addresses


The modules I'm seeing do everything + the kitchen sink, minus one thing I
need to do. Or they have dependencies that are broken. Am I inappropriately
lost here? Am I just being dense?
