If your smartphone or tablet is fitted with a Type-C connector, you will need an adaptor to connect to the Catalyst antenna which uses a Micro USB to type B cable.

As not all USB Type-C adaptors are the same so to ensure performance Trimble recommends you use the Trimble Catalyst micro-B to type-C USB converter (PN 114199) which ships as part of the Catalyst DA1 antenna pack-out.

A none Trimble approved alternative is  Huawei AP52 Micro USB to USB Type-C Adaptor - this is available worldwide via most electronic online vendors.


If you are unsure what a USB Type C port looks like, take a look at the wikipedia link USB Type-C for detail
