HOW IT WORKS

Get closer.
But only when you want to.

Yesterday your phone could tell you where you were within a few meters. Today, with Trimble Catalyst, your phone can tell you where you are within just a few centimeters.

Catalyst features a lightweight antenna that plugs directly into your Android phone or tablet's USB port. Once it's connected to any Catalyst-ready or third party location-enabled app, you can use measure, locate, and share the things you map with the world. The little blue dot on your phone just got a whole lot smaller and more accurate.

And, since Catalyst's revolutionary technology features a software GNSS receiver that delivers high accuracy positioning with an on-demand subscription service, you only pay for it when you need it.

So get ready to get insanely close to your world. Whenever, wherever you want to.

Introducing subscription-based, software GNSS

To build Catalyst, we took Trimble's core GNSS technology that runs on a dedicated hardware chip and transformed it into a software service that can literally run inside an app on your phone. So all you have to do is select a plan and get on-demand accuracy, directly to your mobile device.

HOW WE DID IT

This is a product of Trimble brainpower

Catalyst is the latest example of Trimble's passion and spirit of innovation. It is an idea that grew from the water cooler talk of a few engineers in New Zealand to a global collaboration of Trimble's teams from Munich to Chennai to Colorado. It is opening the door to a new generation of applications. And it's giving users a chance to do a lot more with a lot more accurate information.
