The SAToolz for DIRECTV Satellite Finder makes it easy to determine the best location to setup your DIRECTV satellite dish or DIRECTV mobile satellite dish. This application will quickly allow you to determine if you have line of sight at your current location.

This app allows you to see if there are any obstructions in the way prior to placing your dish such as trees or buildings.

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 type of obstacle might be in the way.

The following DIRECTV satellites are supported: 95°w, 99°w, 101°w, 103°w, 110°w and 119°w.

This is accomplished by using the iPhones built in video camera with an overlay of all the DIRECTV residential satellites as dots in the sky.

To use, simply point your iPhone towards the southern sky and see on the live video screen. The DIRECTV satellites will show up as red dots as you move the video camera around, allowing you to quickly and easily determine if there are any obstructions in the way, like trees or buildings.

- See the satellites move on the screen with live video, everything is realtime.
- Use it anywhere!!! Doesn't require cell service or Internet connectivity.
- Simple and fast, requires no technical knowledge or configuration to use.
- Take screenshots by tapping anywhere on the screen.
- Change the sight color by swiping left or right.

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.

Good, could be even better


I am using this app a lot as I am on an 8 month RV trip and moving around a lot. I have used other, similar apps that are no longer supported in the new iOS so I switched to this app out of necessity.

The only thing that keeps me from giving this app five stars is the lack of a guide arrow to help you locate the area of the sky where to look for the satellites. You have to know the compass directions of your location before you start such that you have a general idea where to look.

As it is, I first open the compass app to find South and then open this app to search for the satellite locations.

Yeah, it’s a minor thing but other apps I have used had a guide arrow and I found that useful.

use it to find Direct Tv Satillites


I was informed of this app from a Direct TV installer. It works. the one review that gave it a bad review did not know how to use the app or was lookint in the wrong direction. Great app.

Totally useless unless you don't have eyes


The only thing this app does is look toward the southern sky (which you have to find without the app's assistance) and tell you if there is a clear line of sight to the satellite in the southern sky. I have eyes... I can do that myself.
