  • Significant Update to Trimble Mobile Manager Released

    Trimble Mobile Manager 3.0 has today been released for iOS on the Apple App store and for Android on the Google Play store.

    New features

    Trimble Mobile Manager 3.0 supports the following new products:

    • Trimble TDC650 handheld GNSS receiver
    • Spectra Geospatial SP30 handheld GNSS receiver

    If you have a Trimble Identity and are signed in, you can now manage your account by selecting the Manage Account item from the main menu in Trimble Mobile Manager (iOS only)

    For more information, see To manage your account.

    Trimble has updated the geodetic library used in the Trimble Mobile Manager software to the latest version, ensuring that customers have the very best positional accuracy available.

    For information on new geoids and updated geoids provided in the gedetic library update, refer to this Support Note: Geoids in Trimble Mobile Manager.

    The update to the geodetic library includes support for local deformation models to further improve time-based transformations in areas of large tectonic movement within plate boundaries (where such models are available), providing accurate positions no matter where you are collecting data.

    As a result of this update, there are some changes in the behavior of Trimble Mobile Manager when:

    • Using a Custom local GNSS correction source and the GNSS source reference frame field is set to Auto.
    • GNSS output detection mode is set to Auto.

    For more information on these changes, refer to this Support Note: Coordinate systems in Trimble Mobile Manager.

    Improvements & fixes

    • When using RTX, Trimble Mobile Manager now falls back from RTX (Internet) to RTX (Satellite) if the Internet connection is lost.
    • The Trimble Mobile Manager app has a new logo.
    • Stability and performance improvements.
  • New Esri ArcGIS Field Maps release

    Esri has today released the latest update to Field Maps. This update supports new functionality, added in TMM 2.9.5, enabling users to take advantage of Trimble high accuracy positions from within Field Maps without the need to log in with a Trimble ID (TID). Users of the Trimble Catalyst DA2 will need to continue to login in order to access their user based licenses.

    Note that if Trimble Mobile Manager is already signed in it will continue to do so until the user signs out. We recommend that users check that their GNSS Configuration settings are as required after signing out of Trimble Mobile Manager, and before they go into the field.
  • Trimble Mobile Manager 2.9.5 Released

    Trimble Mobile Manager has been updated to version 2.9.5 and is now available on the Apple App store and Android Play store.

    TMM 2.9.5 removes the need for users to login with a Trimble ID when connecting to R-series receivers, Spectra receivers or the TDC150. Users of Catalyst based receivers (DA2, DA1) will need to continue to login in as before.
    From a workflow perspective users will see that opening TMM will take them to the Home screen of the app. Users will only be asked to login if they connect to a receiver that requires it, either the Catalyst DA2 or DA1.

    For users of ArcGIS Field Maps an update from Esri will be needed to take advantage of this new functionality. We are in close conversation with our colleagues at Esri to ensure that the TMM/Field Maps solution is aligned ASAP. We will update you as soon as we have more news on this.

    I'd like to thank everyone, especially those who have provided feedback, for your patience as we have worked towards this solution.
