http://www.freebords.se/b1.gif  (kind of apple mapkit blue pulsating marker image) 

This is how I add the gif image.  Is the GMAP control aware of the new google.maps.MarkerOptions optimized:false 

 Dim m = New GMapMarkerImage(New PointLatLng(lat2, lng2), New Bitmap("C:\b1.gif"))    Layer_GPSmarker.Markers.Add(m)

Read something here, is it related ? How to solve this ?

In V3, make sure to use optimized:false

google: c# render gif

GMap.NET does not use the Google Maps API, it only accesses the Google servers, rendering is done in C#.

Thank you Xandolph ! this helps a bit.  Do you have a code snippet that explains how to position a picturebox and adjust offset for marker_image.gif size
