SatFinder, an Android satellite finder.
SatFinder is a tool for finding TV satellites and aligning satellite dishes. Use you AR camera view to see and target satellites in the sky.
* New feature: Touch screen to take a screenshot of Augmented Reality view
SatFinder uses your phone sensors to detect your physical location and calculates azimuth and elevation needed for your satellite antenna to face.
Augmented Reality View:
Use your camera for Augmented Reality View which paints the satellite icons in places where they're positioned in the sky. It gives a realistic view to the sky and it helps to make sure there is a line of sight (LOS), i.e. no obstacles, such as tree branches or house tops, between the satellite dish and the satellite itself.
Target Satellite View:
Use Target Satellite View to find or to "lock onto" a particular satellite. Direction arrows simply guide you to the desired satellite position.
