The LE version of PocketSat is limited and has a fixed DB which only includes the brightest Sats.
It is intended for visual satellite observation.
To quote the support website : http://www.pocketsat.com/products/ps3iphone.php
In addition to the full PocketSat3 application, there is also a less expensive "LE" version available. It is identical to PocketSat3 except that it only works with a fixed set of 40 of the brightest satellites in the sky. These include the International Space Station, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Space Shuttle (if it happens to be flying) so PocketSat3 LE is perfect for the neophyte or casual satellite observer who would still like to use a full-featured tool."
So if you want to track Amateur sats you need the full version. Don't get me wrong it
is a very good application and I have used the Palm version in the past. All I was trying to do
was to flag that the LE version is not intended for Amateur Radio Satellite tracking.
The full version of this program does not have this restriction, thus the price difference.
The author should make this distinction clear in his description in the App Store. It cost me $1.99
(no big loss) to figure this out for myself.
I just want to clear up a possible misconception regarding PocketSat.
>> ... PocketSat 3 LE is not bad but it is really geared to those interested in visual Satellite spotting and is limited to bright sats which unfortunately doesn't include any of the Amateur Sats ...
PocketSat for the Palm - and now for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch - is what I use all the time - and ONLY for the amateur satellites. Maybe the "LE" edition is limited somehow ... But I think you just might have missed a setting or two in it to be able to reliably track and see future passes of AMSAT's 59 sats currently in their database. (Other data sources are easily imported, too.)
