i must admit that i didn't test adding GPS to a dive that doesn't have it.
if editing coordinates from the dive details creates a `dive_site`
object and adds it to the list of dive sites, then the map will create
a marker for it once re-opened / reloaded. that's how the map backend
works on desktop and mobile.
editing the coordinates of a dive with GPS did work the last time i've checked.

hmm, i'm not sure which one is the GPS icon.
i was only using the "map it" button on top of the dive details to open the map.

selecting a flag from the map should select a single dive from the
dive list (latest dive on that dive site).
maybe you found a bug, because at least a couple of people confirmed
that the selection works when this was merged.
