The SAToolz Dish Network Satellite Finder app will quickly allow you to determine if any obstacles like trees or buildings are in the way before you attempt to setup your satellite dish.
It's easy to use SAToolz! Simply point your iPhone towards the southern sky and see on the live camera where the satellites are. You can then easily determine if there are any obstacles preventing you from receiving a satellite signal. This is the ultimate line-of-sight tool!!!
Use this app when camping, RV'ing, tailgating or at home. Use it anytime you need to know if those tree's, buildings or any type of obstacle might be in the way.
The following Dish Network satellites are supported: 61.5°w, 72.7°w, 77°w, 110°w, 118.7°w, 119°w and 129°w.
This is accomplished by using the iPhones built in video camera with an overlay of all the Dish Network residential satellites as dots in the sky.
To use, simply point your iPhone towards the southern sky and see everything on the live video screen. The Dish Network satellites will show up as red dots as you move your iPhone around, allowing you to quickly and easily determine if there are any obstructions in the way.

- Use it anywhere!!!

This software allows you to see if satellite reception is plausible at your current location and is not intended to help align your dish.
When using this application the iPhones internal compass is used to help locate satellites in the sky. It is extremely important that this software is used outdoors away from objects that can cause interference to the compass. Any compass interference will cause the satellites to move sporadically. Please avoid using this software by any object that can cause magnetic interference.

Ratings and Reviews
Very helpful app
I have been using this app for about a year. In comparison the an inclinometer, which still gives you a range of where to look at for satellite, I find that this app is a good. 90% of the time this app is on point. The only time I don't get accurate readings is if I am off the grid and have no phone signal at all. This is a must have app.
Perfect for RV satellites!!
This app is perfect for what it's designed to do. If you need to find that perfect hole in the trees to point you dish through this app is all you need. Just point your phone south and walk around till you have a good view of the satellites.
Excellent product. A must for tailgate users. It's for line of site for placing tailgater clear of trees and buildings for setup of antenna. It's not for pointing a LNB antenna which takes a signal meter
