GNSS Accuracy

Choose your accuracy

Featuring four premium accuracy levels (Precision, Decimeter, Sub-meter, and One meter), as well as a “Freemium” mode (which delivers basic 2-3 m performance), Catalyst users pay only for the accuracy level they want, for the time they want to use it. Trimble’s professional GNSS correction services are bundled with the premium service, so all you need to do is choose your precision level. Subscribe monthly, or for as little as 10 hours per year with Catalyst On Demand, and cancel at any time.

Worldwide service availability

Catalyst can be used just about anywhere. Utilizing a range of correction sources, including SBAS, Trimble RTX and Trimble VRS networks, Catalyst delivers the accuracy you need worldwide.
