Custom Image markers do not appear after looking for a zip code in the directions tab. The colored dots appear if the setting is turned on, but not the markers themselves. This occurs on the demo site as well as the one we are working on. The user has to interact with the map before the markers appear.

So, either this was never working or google has changed something in the API. We are using a drag_end event to load new markers. So basically when you drag the map and when you release the mouse button the drag_event is fired and this is when we say - load new hotspots. Now when you use the find directions -> there is no dragging taking place and that's why we are not loading any hotspots.
As I said - either this never worked and nobody noticed for 2 years, or it was working and something changed with the API. Anyway, I've now changed the call from drag_end to center_changed. The map center seems to always get updated - no matter if you do a drag or the map changes in response to a direction search. Please try the latest dev. release and let me know if it also works for you and if everything else seems ok.
