IMTU, Jumping into and out of empty hexes is not the problem, it is the fueling issue

I made the above suggestions on the assumption that he wanted it to be a bit harder.

As for comparing it to seafaring of old and Jumping of Traveller, on the wooden ships, you could check daily (nightly) for the position of the stars and the sun and such.

Once you Jump, you are stuck for 7 days on a hope and a prayer.

So, yes, I think it would take a bit longer (time prep) to make sure you are correct on your charting and plotting.
