In responding to your original post I assumed you had already followed the 
instructions on how to acquire  point data for your area since your
questiones  involved creating routes, and editting already existing point 
information.  When you have a populated points database you do indeed have 
access to the "Find Point" function in the Options/Funtion Menu.  Without 
any point data this option will not appear as there is nothing to find.

As a point of clarification, I believe you are getting "Navigation mode" 
and "Exploration mode" confused with each other.  Easily done when just 
learning the program!!!

A beginners guide is in the works and will feature on the web site in the 
very near future!
