This will not work. I just tried:
The map widget updates in short intervals like a movie.
Even a native button disappears.
So the overlaying native object should also use a fast update like

which forces a fast update by playing a *non-existent movie.

Another possibility with the map widget itself is to make the custom
marker using polylines. (See property polylines of dictionary/map widget).

Polylines[i]["ccordinates"] are a simple list of coordinate points,
separated by comma (not by cr).
So one could try to exercise that with an ordinary polygon graphic over
a static map (an image).
