SatFinder (Satellite Finder) is a tool which will help you to set up satellite dish. It will give you azimuth, elevation and LNB tilt for your location (based on GPS) and chosen satellite from list. The result is shown both as numeric data and graphical on google maps. It has also built in compass which will help you to find proper satellite azimuth.
The satellite list is complete and includes all televison satellites, so the app should work worldwide. If you found some errors please send me e-mail. It will help me make this app better ;)
Since version 1.07 there is whole world FTA and encrypted channels database. It take a few seconds to show whole list so be patient. It use internet connection. Top 10 countries got fixed language on nice list. The list will be updated. The users from another countries can type language manual. But the list uses language shortcuts, for example - English = eng, German = ger, etc... The channel list is still incomplete - I'm working on it. If you find error on list please send me e-mail...
Normally you use a compass to take the bearings, but nowadays's gadgets, just like your mobile phone can also be used for this purpose as it contains a magnetometer. This utility allows you to take as many bearing as you wish by sighting the coastal feature with the built-in camera and taking a picture of it. Along with the picture the magnetic bearing and the time stamp is saved for later reference when you are doing your chart-work.
• List of bearings with time stamp and picture
• Continuous camera view for coastal feature identification
• Continuous read-out of magnetic bearing, roll and pitch for correct camera handling
• Automatic zoom-in for better coastal feature identification
• Calibration, in case of local magnetic interference
I have to agree with Al Placette when he said this is "one of the most beautiful and oft-quoted lines ever penned about sailing and the sea..."
If you have this extreme nostalgic feeling for this ancient art of navigation using the stars and the planets rather than a GPS, then this app is for you. This app is created with the hope that it could help to do a little part in preserving this beautiful art of navigation, and may be, bringing us all a little bit closer to those courageous sea goers centuries before us.
You can also use it for practical purposes of locating your position while trekking or navigating on the open sea. It is more fun to use than using a GPS and it doesn't drain your phone battery power as a GPS would.
1. This app allows you to enter sextant information of a star sighting and it calculates the most likely position for you.
2. The most likely position is shown on a map that you can zoom in and out to any location around the world.
3. It outputs the relevant information about any star that you are sighting (GHA, Declination, Intercept distance, Azimuth angle, calculated altitude, etc) for you to review. This is a handy feature so that you don't need to bother bringing those big and heavy Nautical Almanac volumes around with you.
4. It can make use of the sensor available on most smart phones to help you measure the altitude of a star by pointing your device in the direction of the star. This feature is handy when you don't have a sextant available.
5. It supports all the 57 navigation stars, plus the SUN, MOON, POLARIS and all the planets.
6. Other helpful aids: meridian, rise, set time and magnetic variation.
This software is a complement to your sextants. It is also a good tool to show your kids about astronomy and its practical benefit, that is how people have been using it to navigate their ways around the world.
To determine your position you must perform a series of star sighting (at least two but the more the better) and record the following information with the help of a sextant:
1. GMT time of the observations
2. Star name: SUN, MOON, Polaris, Sirius, Altair, etc.
3. Altitudes of the stars in degrees and minutes
4. Others info: eyes height above sea level, sextant correction index, lower or upper limb (required for the SUN and MOON only)
The app allows you to enter all these information and it calculates the most likely position for you.
Since most of us may not have a sextant, this app makes use of the available sensors on most smart phones to help you measure the altitude of the star by simply point the device to it. The sensor accuracy is within 1 degree so it is not as accurate as a good sextant but if you do several star sightings then the error will average out and you will get a good fix of your position.
Celestial Navigation Background
Rather than writing a complex mathematical tutorial on celestial navigation and perhaps turn away 90% of the users permanently, let me start by saying that celestial navigation is another way of determining your position on earth by using the stars as your light houses .
Please note that I am using the term star loosely here to mean the Sun, the Moon and the planets as well.
Most of us are familiar with the concept of the light house as it is a mean to help people at sea to determine their position and find their way to a safe port. By keeping track of light houses along your route on a map and follow them, one should be able to get to his destination without much trouble.
Similarly, this app is able to keep track of all the light houses in the sky and help you to navigate to your safe harbor - even if your GPS is broken :)
Pilots use radio navigational aids (NAVAIDs) to go from point to point across the country. The problem is that the names and identification codes can be confusing and hard to remember.
NAVAIDer is a quick search tool that searches a database of VORs and NDBs without an internet connection! Search by the NAVAID's name, ID (2 or 3 letter code), or do a partial name search.
• Search by ID code
• Search by full or partial name
• US NAVAIDs
• Canada NAVAIDs
• Central America NAVAIDs
• Caribbean Islands NAVAIDs
• Bonus: Quiz Feature
ATC: "123ND you are cleared direct Brickyard direct Wilkes-Barre."
Pilot: "...uuhhh... what are the ...uuhhh... phonetic codes for those?"
Simply enter a NAVAID name (or part of the name) and the and the identifier will appear. Or do the opposite: enter a 2 or 3 letter NAVAID identifier to get the full name and state/country of a VOR or NDB.
Bonus: VOR quiz. Learn the names of VORs from around the US!

▶ The orientation of the handset is illustrated by the compass graphic, rotating such that North points to Magnetic North or True North.
▶ The current Latitude, Longitude and Locality/City of the device is also shown below the orientation. The location data is only provided by the Cell Tower triangulation and is only polled once per minute, to conserve battery life.
▶ You can toggle between Magnetic North and True North. The offset between Magnetic North and True North (magnetic declination) is dependent upon the location of the device and the time. The application uses the device location and time to compute the magnetic declination, such that the offset can be subtracted from the orientation to give True North. This is useful for using Compass with a map. For example, in Maine, USA the difference between Magnetic North and True North is ~20° as of 2015.
▶ Calibration warning if magnetometer readings become inaccurate.
The compass accuracy depends on the performance of your device. If it works perfectly, this means your sensors are perfect, too. If it is inaccurate, please check that you aren't being affected by a magnetic field and the sensors become weakened by age.
Prima di tutto, inserisci i gradi del satellite (per esempio Hot Bird 13°) verso il quale vuoi puntare la parabolica, poi inserisci le coordinate (manualmente o tramite la geolocalizzazione) di dove ti trovi e il gioco è fatto, l’app calcolerà:
l’azimuth (indica la rotazione orizzontale della parabolica)
elevazione (indica la rotazione verticale della parabolica)
polarizzazione (indica la rotazione del convertitore LNB).
TrackSat aims to fulfill this need allowing you to track over 5,000 satellites currently orbiting Earth. TrackSat also does all the heavy mathematical calculations on our servers preventing your phone from loosing precious battery life.
If you're an amateur radio operator or just want to know when a satellite is passing overhead, TrackSat also provides you with the information for the next passes at your location - never miss another QSO again!
If you find any bugs or just want to shoot us a suggestion, please inform us at our email.
Thanks for using TrackSat!
