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!
