Description

Finding a TV satellite, in azimuth, can be pretty difficult. With this app you do not need a compass, just two (2) GPS locations, from the satellite dish and a target, is enough. Finding the satellite depends on how accurate the GPS locations are (the phone or from Google Earth/Maps) and how accurate and steady you can aim the phone to the target. Read more about the WARNING and how it works.
How does it work ? In 3 steps or screens:
1- Select the desired TV satellite
2- The GPS location of the satellite dish and the GPS location of a target (or reference point) is needed. The target can be the GPS location of a house, tree, plant, etc. Just enable the GPS in your phone or enter the GPS locations with the help of Google Earth/Maps (satellite dish position and a visible target position).
To indicate how stable or good the values are they get a color. RED = not good or not stable, YELLOW = better but not good, GREEN = good or stable, CYAN = don't know. To receive good GPS signals you should be in the 'open'. GPS signals can be blocked by buildings, trees, etc and that will result in false GPS locations with an error of several meters while the accuracy is good.
3- Set the dish elevation and skew to the calculated values, see screen 3. The satellite pole must be upright. With the GPS locations set, hold the phone steady above the satellite dish and aim the central arrow named 'target' at the target. Then aim the satellite arm to the arrow named 'satellite'. The success of finding the satellite depends on the accuracy of the phone's GPS and how steady your hands are. KEEP THE PHONE AIMED STEADY AT THE TARGET !!!
With this program you can easily align your satellite dish. To determine the satellite dish direction, you should choose your satellite from dropdown list, come near the dish, wait for the best accuracy, fix your position (long tap or menu), and moving away, get your current azimuth, most closely matching.guide of Satellite Director is a tool to hlep you know all things about satellite for finding TV satellites and aligning satellite use your point dish finder of view the reality of increased camera dishpointer to see and target dish finder satellites in the sky.
Sensor SatFinder PRO (satellite locator) is a tool to help the component of the satellite dish. I'll give you azimuth, and a list of satellite channels. The result is displayed as long as the data and Google Maps digital charts. And also built in the appropriate satellite. A also pour UTILIZATION augmented reality Where is the show on the satellite view.
Finding a TV satellite or an antenna, in azimuth, can be pretty difficult. Before you can find it with a compass you have to do some calculations using GPS location, magnetic variation, compass azimuth and satellite azimuth.
Satellite Director replaces all of that. See tips to success below.

WARNING: YOUR PHONE or TABLET MUST HAVE A COMPASS !!!!
WITHOUT COMPASS YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.
Check "Satellite Locator" which uses GPS locations to find a satellite.
Some phone/tablet compass are really bad so compare your phone/tablet compass with a real compass !!
