Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Dish For My RV - 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 the Dish For My RV - Dish Network Satellite Finder! 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 other 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.
- See the satellites move on the screen with live video, everything is realtime!
- Use it anywhere!!!
- Does not require cell service or Internet connectivity.
- Simple and fast, requires no technical knowledge or configuration to use.
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.

What's New in Version 2.10
Thanks for using Dish For My RV Satellite Finder!
- Newly redesigned user interface!
- More accurate than ever!
As a Dish service tech I use this app EVERY day and has been dead on every time! It is so much easier than most apps I have used and much easier than using a inclinometer! But as a tech it is not a replacement for the inclinometer when you are trying to get a signal through a small hole. I recommend this app to every customer that has an RV or moves their Dish. The only thing I would change is make recalibrate button, rather than randomly recalibrating. If that's the only thing I can find to change then I think this is a GREAT app!!!
Camping in a wooded area and could only find one satellite. Found this app for my iPhone 5 and purchased it. Was able to find a clear spot with both satellites in view. Re-scanned my dish and all my channels were there! Highly recommend this app.
I wish Dish Network would have recommended this app when we purchased dish and subscription. We cut down 6 trees at our mountain cabin before we searched the App Store for a "satellite finder". Worked great...
