I played elite a few months back and was really enjoying it, with the holidays I got side tracked. Long story short I fired it up again and the Map is really frustrating, was hoping to get some ideas how others are handling it in VR, maybe I'm just not doing it correct. I use the mouse to zoom, up/down movement etc. but cannot get any destination clicked to get a route plotted, I end up trying to follow the route and then exit and pick the destination that is closest to me on my right panel, jump and go back and do it again, esp if it is a big jump this gets old.
So a quick update, I assigned the Galaxy map controls to my Hotas (still can use the mouse to move around), working better, but I feel really stupid even mentioning it, the reason I did not have a round disk to select stars was I did not have the "Grid" turned on, on the menu while in the map.
