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 multiple flags on the map or selecting multiple dives in the
dive list is not possible on mobile.
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.
