Hi Cindy,

On the page you are reading (Part 1: Exploration mode) there's also:

Giving focus

The joystick lets you 'look around', however, it does not give focus to a 
point. This only can be done by using the numeric keypad on your phone. The 
moment you switch to Exploration mode the nearest point to the 'last 
position' information on your phone is announced, but this point does not 
yet have the focus.
Press one of the direction keys on the keypad to give focus to a point. 
Once this is done the 'update' function becomes active. You may also use 
the 'Find Point' option to give focus to a point.

So: first 'find' a point, either by using the number keys or the 'Find 
Point' option from the menu. Once you have found a point, you can start 
checking and updating.
