Default iPhone dish alignment

Not being a user of the iPhone. I took my wife's iPhone and added the compass app. I could not believe how easy it is to set a sat dish with it. The compass is true not magnetic because it uses the gps system. readings are true.
Set it against the bracket on the back of the dish and easily set, precisely the E-W coordinates.
Slide the compass screen and you are now using the digital angle.
You can set the dish at the precise angle for elevation.
Forget the old inclinometer and magnetic compass.
Wonder if the installers use it? So fast to do. Takes all the guesswork out of it.
Great to learn something new, for me at least.
