I have a Dish Tailgater and I am trying to find an app to enable my iPhone to locate the satellites so I know where to find a clear path. Any suggestion for a free app that will do this?
Thanks


Ditto here I have the same question and have been looking for the past couple of days.

the Dish For My RV app uses your phone's camera to show where the Dish birds are. we use it all the time.


On the Dish for my RV does will that give you a look at the sky and see the Sats and obstructions?

Thank You

yes. activate the app, point the phone towards the south/southwest and look at the screen. you'll see what the camera sees and the app will show you where the sats are.

this is what it looks like. i just took this from inside our house.

Thank You rk911 that looks good. I see you have Verizon I have AT&T but assume that will make no difference. At 4.99 it is not bad I have spent more than that on Coffee.

other than not having service at your campsite choice of cellular provider makes no difference.

Hello again

Well I purchased the app Dish for my RV and it seems to work well, I can see 6 satellites 3 for the east and 3 for the west if I am correct. Will see how it does in the future
