I don't understand the confusion with the Exploration mode and navigation 
mode.  If you look in the options menu, and it says Exploration mode then 
you know if you select that item, that is the mode you will be in when you 
select it.  I am using Talks and when I press the zero key it tells me what 
mode I just went to.

> Isolate points off (actual state)
