I see your problem. When you enter exploration mode it will say the closest 
point and in which direction it is. Your position isn't moved to that point 
thoe. Your position is either your current gps position or the last gps 
position. You have to move to the desired point with the number keys. They 
work as follows: 2 north, 3 north east, 6 east, 9 south east,  8 south, 7 
south west, 4 west, 1 north west. The lay out is the 8 main directions of a 
compass. Once you move to a point either using the number keys or the find 
point option then you can mark or unmark it.
