The Norsat Satellite Locator is the easiest way to locate geostationary satellites on your mobile phone wherever you are. Just open the Satellite Finder app and point your screen at the sky to view a spatially accurate arc of satellites overlaid on your viewer. You can even customize the color of the satellite arc for easy viewing in different weather conditions. Use this app to point your Norsat or other satellite ground terminal, or just impress people with your keen knowledge of satellite locations.
The app includes an up to date almanac of satellite information, including azimuth, elevation, frequency and more. Just tap the name of the satellite of interest to open the almanac and find all the relevant details. The almanac can be easily edited, so you can make changes whenever necessary.

What's New in Version 1.2
Updated application to work with iOS7.
App doesn't work
App is set to use location always, camera is enable, uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, still unable to see any satellite arc when opening the app. It would help if there was a FAQ to help assist with issues.
Will not work on IOS 7
WARNING: This app will not even open on iOS 7. It will crash on startup.
Works fine but...
Location services needs to be set to Always. While Using the App not an option. Also, cannot save an additional satellite to the almanac. Long press on screen opens the almanac. Added 119W (Orbital Position -119.0) and saved. Can see 119W on arc. Can go back to the almanac and see the additional satellite; however, if I close the app and open, the additional satellite is not in the almanac, i.e., not saved. Verified Restore almanac on next launch is Off in settings. Have to add the satellites I am looking for (110W, 119W, 129W) each time I use the app. Only takes a minute, but would be nice if fixed. May be an iOS 8 issue. Doesn't look like the app has been updated since iOS 7.
