Depending on your application and Trimble Catalyst subscription, you will have different needs for how you mount your phone or tablet and your Catalyst DA1 antenna.

Contact your Distributor for their recommendations and suggestions.
Trimble Catalyst can run on compatible Android phones and tablets but due to the processing requirements may not work on older model devices. We have provided some guidelines below to help you understand if your device will meet the minimum hardware specifications.
Trimble Catalyst connects to the DA1 antenna through the USB port on your phone or tablet. In order to power the antenna from your device's battery, your device needs to support 'USB-OTG'. If your device does not support USB-OTG, you can still connect and use Trimble Catalyst by powering the DA1 with the external battery pack supplied with your antenna.
Android devices with a USB Type-C connector require a USB-C adapter to operate with Trimble Catalyst. Trimble recommends the Huawei AP52 Micro USB to USB Type-C Adapter (PN AP52-W-BK).
To check if your device is compatible, download the Trimble Mobile Manager app from the Google Play store. The Trimble Mobile Manager app will check your device's performance capabilities against Trimble Catalyst requirements.
