It's my speculation that he is actually hacking into Cortana (she is in the PoA's computers by that point, trying to activate the countdown to the engine detonation). She does say, after all, that, "He's in my data arrays --- a local tap."

Cortana could easily hold information like the location of Earth, plus much, much more. She holds tactical information for use in battle. Maybe she holds records of age-old battles for later use in modern battles? Don't forget the quote, "History repeats itself."

Theoretically, Cortana would purge the location of Earth from her own data banks, as per the Cole Protocol. However, as we all know, one can never be to sure when it comes to shipboard AIs.
