Antenna Pointer shows azimuth on a map for a given location

Pointing antenna isn't a easy task. You need knowledge, coordinates, steady hand and until this app a azimuth pointer. Antenna Pointer helps you to orientate any antenna that needs azimuth direction, no matter where you are.

It uses GPS and all geo-location technology of your device to place you on a map provided by Gmaps. Then, it shows azimuth red line for a given location. From settings you can set operation (azimuth or point to point), azimuth coordinates and distance (km). What's more you can set "switch inclinometer sign" "show satellite maps" and "enable/disable GPS updates", depending on your needs mounting an antenna.

The app is quite accurate. UI has been simplified to make it understandable for everyone. Useful.

Developer's original description available here
This app is showing a azimuth line on map for a given location. In strong electromagnetic field and close to the metal things compasses could not work correct. In those kind of situations this app could be useful to find reference points on map and help to correct align the antenna.

It should be helpful for all the people who mount sector antennas (f.e. GSM sector antennas).

All settings are hidden in menu. For further info read help.
If there is any bug, please send me e-mail.

App is design for ICS, on older devices it can look different than on the images...

    Our work has a trailer that gets deployed to different locations. This app allows us to put in the Lat and Long to our relay tower and then align our antenna with ease and gets us on our corporate network.
