Locate TV satellites in the sky with your iPhone or iPad.
SatFinder Lite is a tool for finding TV satellites and aligning satellite dishes.
SatFinder uses your phone sensors to detect your physical location and calculates azimuth and elevation your satellite antenna needs to face.

- Use Augmented Reality View to see and target satellites in the sky.
Use your camera for Augmented Reality View which shows satellite icons in places where they're positioned in the sky. It gives a realistic view to the sky and it helps to make sure there is a line of sight (LOS), i.e. no obstacles, such as tree branches or house tops, between the satellite dish and the satellite itself.

- Touch screen to take a screenshot of Augmented Reality view

Used for years, suddenly doesn’t work

I have used this app for years successfully and as of recent it is no longer working for me. I have ruled out that it is an issue with my device as my proprietary apps for satellite LOS still work and other similar apps work. Unfortunately I now have to change to a different app.

Motorhome dish

We have have a dish mounted on top of our motorhome and a lot of camp grounds are lush with beautiful shade trees. Unfortunately trees and satellite Signals don’t coexist to well unless they’re dead or it’s spring or fall and there is no foliage on them. The Satfinderlite app is just the ticket to locate the spot to shut the motor off at. Before we pull into a campground spot we’ll exit the coach and take out our iPhone and locate the spot that we have a clear view of the birds. Once we’ve located them it a great Relaxing evening of TV.
