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: Ability to manually enter Location latitude and longitude details in case Location cannot be automatically determined in case of "no connectivity"
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.
- Touch screen to take a screenshot of Augmented Reality view
- Pinch to zoom satellites in and out. Double tap to reset.
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.
- AR view is now available in Target View too
- Major GUI update. New tabbed layout in Action bar. Portrait and landscape modes are now supported automatically. Preferences are now greatly simplified and cut down to a few options. Pinch to zoom in/out satellites in AR view, double tap to reset. Ability to manually enter Location latitude and longitude details.
