the desktop version dive list and map are more tightly linked.
on desktop the map updates immediately and also an entry is selected
in the dive list.
on mobile you have to click "map it" from dive details to move the map
to a new marker and a dive list entry is not selected on startup.

if you want the most recent dive to be selected on the map it also
makes sense for it to be selected in the dive list.

currently the map initializes over Greenwhich, but it's zoomed in.
maybe it should be zoomed out to see the entire globe.

strange, cannot confirm. just tried zooming in very deep from the
subsurface map and opening in google map reproduced the location

c), d) same as above. cannot confirm.

works for me. zoom over a single marker that is not selected. run
"Select visible dive locations" and the marker is selected.
it follows the same logic as a) - only a single dive in the list is selected.
