This is a great app that does the job. I use it primarily to get the pointing angles and then do my actual aligning with a compass and an inclinometer. If I calibrate the phone compass then the 'Use Camera' option is more reliable. However I generally don't trust the compass in any smartphone and always have a real compass nearby. That said, this app is a great tool for checking the elevation to determine if I'm going to be able to clear an obstacle. The 'Invert Elevation Measurement' and 'Elevation Offset' can be a bit tricky to set. I saw one reviewer who said this app always has him point to the ground, so he gave a low rating. The app works, you just have to go into the settings and tweak a little bit. I have used this app on 3-4 models of phones and all over the world. Many of the pointing apps in the Play store only give the True Azimuth. This app gives the True Azimuth, but also the Magnetic Azimuth. If you point satellite dishes this is the only pointing tool you need.
Needs updating Works OK in note 3, not super accurate but good enough to give an idea about the satellite direction
I hate it can't get it to set up so unless some one can help me i'm done This satellite finder sucks
Completely inaccurate 4 of us have tried this and cannot get a clear alignment. One moment it says you have it perfect then it's as if the satellite moved 40° in the other direction. After multiple attempts over several weeks and different handsets I give up. Gs2
Works great Although I could not find an option for the satellite I was looking for, I put this app in camera mode and used it to zero in on an object on the ground I could aim towards. I had tried for an hour to get a signal prior, and found one within a few minutes after. This app saved me tons of headache.
This is the greatest app! I have been using it for several months. The camera feature lets me find the gaps through trees while camping. Awesome!
- Totally redesigned GUI.
- Displays satellite for easier alignment.
- Added LNB tilt back to the screen.
- Denoted that azimuth is magnetic, which matches target azimuth computation.
