Try to set the approach ranges in Options/Settings/General to smaller 
values. I'm using an approach time of 10 and an approach distance of 9 
meters. This works fine with points as close as 20 meters apart. Keep on 
moving, if you stand still the receiver starts 'drifting' and this results 
in the announcement of points at random. Make sure your checkpoints are at 
least 15 meters seperated. Having a file with checkpoints loaded is not 
different from checking points manual. The announcement of unwanted points 
usually has  to do with a too low speed, standing still or having points 
checked that are too close.
