"The InfoWindow opens when a marker or bubble is tapped. It has a black
background with white text. When multiple markers are close to each
other, the InfoWindow will also include arrows for navigating to the
desired marker. The report metrics are displayed in the InfoWindow in
the order that they are listed on the report."

If the ask here is to use a more buzzwordy term, you could try
"paginate" instead, e.g. "When multiple markers are close to each other,
the InfoWindow will also include arrows for pagination between the
nearby markers."
