I think you're right about the shift of key 6. This would free up shift key 
5. I think that'll be the key to track the destination point suggested by 
another user.
We've considered having the closest point automatically be in focus when 
entering exploration mode and at one time it actually did this. If your 
points aren't too close together this can be useful but if you have a lot of 
points then this can be more of a hinderence than a help. Just because a 
point is closest doesn't mean it's of any interest at the moment. Maybe this 
could be a setting or something.
You can check and uncheck a point using the star key. This is probably best 
left as is since there's not too many keys to use in exploration mode. The 
shift star will probably be used for something else, maybe something to do 
with route mode when it gets implemented.
