Question the Android app?
how good is the DishPointer App? And how much space should you allow for LOS?
This is a two part question...
I just installed the Dishpointer app on my Android (droid X) phone to see if I could get a good line of sight for an EA (1000.4 - Dish) install on the side of my home.

1) how accurate is the App?
2) I have two trees and when in full bloom (its dead of winter so no leaves now) I am thinking there will be about an inch to two inches between the trees bloom and where the dishpointer stated the EA sats are located. The tree's are about 60+ away and my screen size on the phone is 4.3" (I wish the app would take a screen cap, I know you can root the phone and do it but...) And I'd rather not mount a dish on the roof again (back story I had a 5lnb D* setup but a different tree was cutting off the lower birds. And I had the roof just replaced well repaired after the dish was removed. Plus I assume its easier to whack off the snow or re-point if needed if the dish was at waist level on the side of the home.
Not sure my question makes a whole lot of sense :-) but if it does I look forward to any answers or advice or suggestions
