Satellite finder ?

I have a KING Tailgater satellite system. Can anyone recommend one of the 'Satellite Finders' on Google Play? I have an Android phone and have tried a couple of these finders. Some are too technical, others provide much more than I need. I just want to find a Dish satellite. I tried a Wineguard one,but, want's a password. Thank you. (Semi-digital savvy).

for DISH TV highly recommend the "Dish For My RV" app ($5, i think). easily and quickly finds the dish birds and shows any obstructions using the device's camera.

I use SatFinder Pro. Love that you can see all the TV satellites with a picture of the sky. Help avoid obstructions and guessing.

Another Sat Finder Pro user. The sky view option lets you see exactly where the satellite is located in relation to trees, etc.
