my idea is :
1.) to create a database or xml file to store the coordinates
2.) retrieve the coords from database and create a polyline from the coords in JS
3.) display the polyline and the marker on the google map (JS)
  -add a marker to the map with the first coord (this will be the starting point)
  -loop through each coord and refresh the coordinates of the marker (you can create a button to stop/start the loop)
  -you can use setInterval()/clearInterval() functions in JS to automate the loop

you can use http://en.googlemaps.subgurim.net/ free .net control if you would like to avoid writing javascript


here is an example how to animate the marker along the route:

hope it helps
