iPhone Screenshots


Point your phone towards the sky and see on the live camera screen where the satellites are, any line of sight (LoS) issues by trees or buildings and the look angles. Couldn't be easier to install your dish with this augmented reality satellite finder. As a professional installer said: "Invaluable, gets the job done in half the time"

+ Augmented Reality, see the satellites on the display
+ Works world wide at any location with any satellite
+ Does not require cell signal or internet access
+ Select the satellites to be displayed from a list
+ Add or delete your own satellites to/from the list (PRO)
+ Displays satellite settings (azimuth, elevation, skew) and current magnetic as well as true heading for the screen center
+ Clarke Belt (satellite arc) is shown from east to west - all geostationary satellites are along this arc
+ When moving the iPhone laterally or vertically, the arc and the satellites move in real time with the live image
+ Ability to lock the compass, i.e. the arc won't move laterally anymore
+ Ability to enter location

Why get the Pro version?
+ Add your own satellites to the list, update them whenever you want - complete independence when satellite positions change or new ones appear - no need to wait for an official update. For business critical missions a must.
+Be on the safe side for future updates and new features. Pro version always take priority over the standard version.

Usage instructions
1. Switch it on and tap AR View button
2. In camera mode, look at the bottom label and rotate iPhone until it heads towards south (true heading = 180°). (People located on the southern hemisphere should point the iPhone north).
3. Lift the iPhone and watch the satellites appear
4. Move the device laterally and see the satellites moving too
5. Compass is sensitive to interferences but and works best when device is held flat. You can lock the compass in that position and lift the iPhone up but don't move it laterally then.

NOTE: The app does not require Cell or internet, works on its own.

Works great. Thanks for the update.

Worth Every Penny!!!


I balked at the idea of paying 20 bucks for this app at first. Recently, my mother moved to a very rural area. She ordered a 200 channel package from a sat tv company. Installer comes out, slaps up the dish, and she can only get 6 channels-and marginally at best- he tells her to be glad for that, it was the only spot for signal. I went over with this app, and lo and behold, I found THREE spots to get both satellites she needed. I moved the dish and reset the elevation according to the app, and I got over three times the signal he got, and she now gets all her channels clearly, all the time!! Thanks for this app- it worked just as it says, and it really is cool to see where those satellites are in the sky! It's worth the money, that's for sure!

Much Easier Than An Inclinometer!


I had heard about this program from a trainer while in training. The most difficult part about the program is presetting the list of available satellites to the ones you only wish to see. In lehmans terms, it's a very user friendly interface for a newby or seasoned installer. I've had the program lock up twice in four months of using, which makes it extremely reliable, considering how much I use it. I can count on one hand the times I've had to use my inclinometer along with this program. Customers LOVE feeling like they're a part of the installation process, as well. Buy It......Recommend It.....Enjoy It!!
