Trimble technology at your fingertips

  • Runs on Android devices such as your own smartphone and tablet, or a fully rugged device like the Android-based Trimble TDC100 handheld.
  • Supports the subscription-based Trimble Catalyst™ software GNSS receiver*, providing very low initial cost of ownership and flexible plans for a complete surveying/GIS system.
  • Compatible with full-featured Trimble GNSS receivers such as the R2, R8s and R10.
* Trimble Catalyst does not support the TDC100 handheld.

If your Android device uses the new USB Type C form factor, you will need a third-party USB microB to USB type C converter to use Catalyst. To fully support Catalyst your USB converter cable supports the USB OTG standard. Trimble recommends the Huawei AP52.
