I only have a 5" manual Dob, and I rely on Stellarium for figuring out what I'm looking at, or what I want to try to find. Stellarium can simulate the impact of light pollution on how few stars you can see, so it more accurately matches what you can see.

If you have a tablet (Apple or Android) having both Stellarium and Sky Safari on the tablet is well worth it. The larger screens of tablets makes the apps easier to use.

The other app that's also worth having is Clear Outside. That lets you see what the cloud cover is likely to be, in advance of an evening.
