When you are looking for satelites are you supposed to have the compass button on for the DP Pro to accurately locate the satelites. If no what is the purpose of the compass button?

Yes you should have it on - that will help you to find the right direction. On some phones, the compass works better when the phone is held flat. In those cases you find the right direction first and then switch off the compass and lift the phone without shifting it sideways. Also, if you have a better reference (an existing dish for example), you can switch off the compass and move the sats with your finger.
