Need some help with Drupal 7/Google Maps

I'm trying to create an interactive search application for Drupal 7, using the Location and GMAP modules to create a view. I'm getting close to what I want, but need answers to a few things I can't find in the documentation or with a search.

I am using a custom content type with a location field. What I'd like to do is have a view that will allow a user to create a search based on a distance from their zip code. I also have another field that's a taxonomy field, that could be used to optionally narrow down the search further.
