MQM Calculator?

I know there have been home-brew versions of an MQM Calculator on the web, however most everyone here just does a dummy booking to see the total MQMs for their upcoming trips. Is dummy still the go to way, or is there something else out there now? Looking to go on a late Dec MR from Florida to LHR.

Thanks folks!

The online calculators are usually accurate to within a few miles. They're fine if you don't really need a precise number and I often just use gcmap.com to get mileage instead of going to the effort of a dummy booking. Of course, if you are dealing with premium cabin fares or Y/B coach, you need to consider class of service MQM bonus which the DL mileage calculator will automatically calculate
Note that VS Economy Delight fares are about $150 more than DL Main Cabin/VS Economy Classic tickets to LHR. They are like Comfort+, but have a 25% MQM bonus (which DL Comfort+ fares do not). You will also typically do quite well with RDM and MQD earning on these vs. DL tickets.
