DataObject Fields in Tab

I am working on an extension of GoogleMapSelectableField, which manages this in a DataObject.
Currently it is so that it establishes a $has_one-relationship and thus receives a new tab. This also works great, but will not save the data.
Here are parts of the codes:

Page with Location:

class geoPage extends Page
{ …
   static $has_one = array(
      'Location' => 'Location'
   public function getCMSFields()
   { …
      $location = $this->Location();
      $fields->addFieldsToTab("Root.Content.Location", $location->getCMSFields() );

Location DataObject:

class Location extends DataObject
   function getCMSFields()
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $fields = $this->scaffoldFormFields(array(
         'fieldClasses' => array(
            'Lat'                     => 'HiddenField'
            ,'Lng'                  => 'HiddenField'
            ,'Zoom'                  => 'HiddenField'
            ,'FormatedAddress'            => 'GoogleMapSelectableField'
      return $fields;

When I mount it so I also receive among my fields, a dropdown box with all geoPages.
But I get no connection between the Page and the Location.

I hope you can help me

I forgot: I use silverstripe 2.4 beta

Edit: add Image & beta info
