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

A search for apps on your phone doesn't find anything?

Just install several and pick the one you want. By then figure out if you need OS or android.

Was hoping for a suggestion for one that is not too difficult to use.

I’ve been using Dish For My RV. It’s available in the App Store.

Win guard has an app that will locate satellite and antenna signals. It’s called TV signal finder.

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