Not much, but it was not much different to the old system. The only thing the old system do was give a tag saying I WOZ ERE when you got close enough and even then you didn't need to be able to see it properly, it could just be a dot in the distance. Great exploring there. Most of the time you don't even need to move from your position to scan seller bodies.If I visit a system containing only stellar bodies and use the FSS. What exactly do I have left to explore?
Not what I would call exploring, but each to their own.
