The Trimble® TDC6 handheld is a multi-functional data collector that provides users with a powerful and flexible way to perform their field tasks across industries and applications, including mapping and GIS, surveying, forensics, utilities, civil construction and forestry. 

As the successor to the Trimble TDC600 handheld, the robust TDC6 introduces several advancements: a lighter and more compact form factor, a hot-swappable battery, an upgradable and secure Android™ operating system and 5G capability. The handheld has been developed to support leading Trimble field software to provide users with optimal performance.

The data collector is ideal for price sensitive customers and provides a scalable tool for larger organizations that can be deployed across a range of applications—from basic GIS and asset data capture to complex on-machine and surveying uses. The TDC6 is both a main unit data collector as well as an enabler accessory for new and more advanced user workflows such as high-accuracy GNSS and robotic total station operation.

The TDC6 integrates seamlessly with powerful Trimble data collection applications, including Trimble TerraFlex® GIS software and Trimble Access™ survey software, as well as third-party apps such as Esri® ArcGIS® Field Maps. Google Mobile Services certification further allows users to personalize their device with Google core applications and access to all compatible apps on Google Play.

The TDC6 connects easily with Trimble GNSS solutions like the Trimble R580 GNSS receiver and Trimble Catalyst™ DA2 system to provide high-accuracy GNSS data for any workflow.

Additionally, pairing the TDC6 with the Trimble EDB10 Data Bridge module facilitates communication between the handheld and Trimble robotic total stations like the Trimble S7 and Trimble S9. TDC6 also supports the Trimble SiteVision™ augmented reality system for accurate real-world visualization of geospatial information.
