"Satellite Directory-SatFinder"Is a tool that will help you set up a satellite dish.
Never again need to watch the TV screen or contact another person for help while aligning your satellite dish, just use your phone or tablet to align your satellite dish by reading the signal levels of the satellite receiver Vu + (enigma2).

How it works ?

is a tool that will help you set up a satellite dish.
It will give you azimuth, elevation and LNB tilt for your location and satellite selected from the list.
The result is shown both as numeric and graphic data on Google maps.
He also built in compass to help you find the appropriate satellite azimuth.
It can also use augmented reality to show where is satellite on camera view.
The list of satellites is complete with all television satellite, then the application should work worldwide.
Since version 1.07 there is whole world FTA and encrypted based channels.
It takes a few seconds to display the entire list be patient.
It uses an Internet connection .
Top 10 countries have set on the beautiful language list.
The list will be updated , users of another country can enter language textbook.
Just enable the GPS in your phone , select the desired TV satellite and point your phone to the sky to target the TV satellite.

You found the satellite when the white ball is in the white circle and the cyan ball is in the cyan circle.
Align, azimuth, the offset arm of the satellite dish to the cyan arrow on the screen phones and the dish is aligned in azimuth with the satellite.
Selectable audio tone, camera preview, continuous mode, color pickers or a user-defined satellite position may be easier for you to find the desired TV satellite.
Optional: you can get an indication when you are near iron (dish / pole) in the form of a yellow green bar / red /.

How to use this app:

1. First of all, you should enable GPS and Internet on your phone. Remember – in most cases it is impossible to receive GPS signal inside buildings. So if you want to get very accurate location – please go near windows or go even outside.

In current app version location should be found quite immediately. So if you stuck with ‘no location’ message please make ensure that you got enabled all required features/permissions.

2. If app found your location, you must select desired satellite. To do this you must find icon with magnification glass and tap it. On the list you will find all satellites with elevation angle above zero degrees. Remember: satellite name doesn’t affect the calculation of angles. Important thing is satellite position.

3. The azimuth, elevation and skew angle is calculated for your location and chosen satellite. Under calculated values there is a compass with graphical representation of azimuth angle. The azimuth angle is calculated with magnetic inclination. Remember – every time you use compass – you should calibrate it. Green line represents your phone azimuth. So if on compass green and red indicators are on each other – front of the phone should show you direction to the satellite. If the compass value is correct – phone azimuth value will go green.
