I'm using the following to find the lat and long of a point when a user clicks on the map.  I only want the current marker displayed when a user clicks.  currently the markers stay there.  however you can remove them by clicking on the marker.  

I want only one marker displaying at a time.  the current marker with the current coordinates.
<script type="text/javascript"> 

    //<![CDATA[ 

 

    var map = new GMap(document.getElementById("map")); 

    map.centerAndZoom(new GPoint(-92.27722, 34.74875), 4); 

 

    var point = new GPoint(-92.27722, 34.74875); 

    var marker = new GMarker(point); 

    map.addOverlay(marker); 

 

    GEvent.addListener(map, 'click', function(overlay, point) { 

 

        if (overlay) { 

            map.removeOverlay(overlay); 

 

      } else if (point) { 

 

            map.recenterOrPanToLatLng(point); 

            var marker = new GMarker(point); 

            map.addOverlay(marker); 

 

     } 

 

     }); 

 

// Recenter Map and add Coords by clicking the map 

GEvent.addListener(map, 'click', function(overlay, point) { 

            document.getElementById("latbox").value=point.y; 

            document.getElementById("lonbox").value=point.x; 

}); 

    //]]> 

    </script>
