- ED Discovery
- A 3rd party tool that can track your Elite Dangerous travels, combat, trading, rank etc. Before Elite Dangerous 2.2 it could only track travel, now with 2.2, EDDiscovery tracks much more! It can now log other data such as rank, commodities, materials, scans and all host of other data.EDDiscovery also gives you a 3D map and 2D maps of the galaxy, showing travel history and data from EDSM and EDDB to aid your journey through the Elite Dangerous galaxy.
- Elite Dangerous Market Connector
- EDMC is a 3rd party app that will make a note of System and station data and then allow you to upload that data to other sites such as EDDB or Elite Trading Tool.
- Please note that this app uses the original ios API which requires your ED Log in details. It’s not doing anything nefarious with those details (it’s open source so go check for yourself!) However it’s something to be aware of.
- Elite Companion App
- Originally an official iOS app, now discontinued
- ED Engineer
- Makes a note of your materials and then will help you showing what upgrades you can get or what commodities you need. It DOES need a little setting up since it makes a guess about your commodities but it’s just a best guess so you need to check and fix it.
- Configuration websites
- Takes the navigation data apps like ED Discovery uploads and uses it to log your travels
- i.e. https://www.edsm.net/en/user/flight-logs/id/5386/cmdr/Eid+LeWeise
