On my original Nexus 5 the augmented reality was brilliant, howver now I have changed to the Nexus 5x the imagery is upside down, renering this completely useless. What would also be a great feature would be if the app could show a map like the desktop version, and using the GPS from the phone, place you exactly where you are on the map, and draw the line of sight on the map. This would provide superb accuracy for judging whether you have line of sight or not, because phone compasses and inclinometers are not always perfectly calibrated.
I worked for Dish Network as an Installation Tech for a little over 2 years. This is the EXACT same app that was preloaded on our company issues Galaxy Note smartphones. When I say EXACT I mean EXACT. It works like a charm. Because I live in a small south Texas town 65 miles south of Houston I was a Remote Tech. Although I no longer work for Dish folks here in town still call on me from time-to-time to help adjust their Dish or set it up when they move or go to deer camp, this is the app I use. It's worth the 1 time $19.99 fee.
DishPointer Pro I tried several "free" apps before buying this one. Definitely worth it. DishPointer is very simple to use. Check just the satellites you want to see and the app saves them so you don't have to scroll thru hundreds of satellites to find the one(s) you want each time you run the app. Huge when setting up a dish - its time consuming enough! Highly recommend!
Great Installation Tool This is great for taking line of sight pictures. If there is blockage, it will show a red dot where the satellite is located. You can then take a picture to show to anyone who doubts you. It is off a few degrees sometimes, but that is related to the handset. It also doesn't work well on metal roofs. Again, that is likely hardware related.
I was unable to setup our dish even after following the directions. This app advertises a 14 day money back guarantee when you purchase however after emailing the company (7 days ago) I have yet to hear back from them regarding a refund
Used to be good This app sucks for $20 sucks.I'm a satellite installer and I've had this for years now. ITS VERY UNRELIABLE!!! 99% of the time its wrong. I pointed at the ground still says 45 for elevation???
