The Position Display on the left showing your current position in the galaxy of Elite: Dangerous®.
The first information is the star system name, you are currently in. The second information could be the name of a planet, space station or of an already stored location. On top there is a display, showing your movement status, ranging from supercruise to docked.
To add a space station or a location to your database, you need to be present there. This is important to identify the position of the location in the galaxy. Thereafter your position is automatically identified on approach and the Position Display will show you that information.
The location data is also important for the navigation, because you can select a recorded location as your destination and you will be able to calculate a route to it with all required waypoints and jump distances.
