When exploring outside the bubble, enter two systems, and receive a list of points of interest between them. Why visit just one place, when you could take the scenic route?

If you are at a point A (let's say Sol, home of Earth) and you plan to visit point B (let's say the far-flung Colonia settlement), you might pass by many other interesting places en route without even knowing. If you don't mind a few extra jumps to see some spectacular interstellar sights, use this tool to find them!


Simply type in your current position and destination (either the system name as it appears in Elite Dangerous or the Point of Interest name as known by EDSM), how far your ship can jump, and how many extra jumps you are willing to consider, and click Search.

Please note that numbers of jumps are estimated by straight line distance, and so may appear less than the actual number of jumps for ships with low jump range or sparse areas of the galaxy.
