I don't see a problem with "cycle through" for English readers, but I don't
know if the phrase has equivalents in other languages.

I would probably rewrite that sentence to say something like, "if multiple
markers are close to each other, use the InfoWindow arrows to select the
desired marker."

Question: if the InfoWindow opens when a marker is tapped, how do you use
InfoWindow arrows to select markers? Do you tap on any marker to open the
window and then use the arrows to change the selection?
